Heidi Kayser presents her wearable "junk" backpack project, Keep Moving, which will be part of the Tote Your Float Public Art Parade in Los Angeles in March in conjunction with ArtNight Pasadena. Kayser received a grant for the work from Newtown Arts, an artist-run, not-for-profit organization that supports artists working in the public sphere throughout the Los Angeles area.

The participatory public art project takes a darkly humorous yet poignant look at topics of domestic instability reflected in current issues in immigration, homelessness, and corporate consumerist life-style. As these issues become more relevant than ever, Keep Moving encourages people to literally shoulder their material possessions and question values that span culture and nation.

The public art project will culminate in an exhibition at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena.
