"For over ten years Fletcher has worked collaboratively and individually on interdisciplinary, site-specific projects exploring dynamics of social spaces and communities. Fletcher describes his artistic approach as "the hanging out method", as he starts each of his projects by observing and talking to people in order to respond to a specific place… Fletcher initiates mini-theaters for stories, fantasies and memories to be shared in new ways." -Robert Beck Memorial Cinema (New York City, 17 July 2003)
