 38 site specific installations, 14th street in Manhattan and Mott Haven in the Bronx

 dimensions variable, 2009-10


A series of ephemeral text drawings placed in front of unoccupied spaces. The texts derive from observations of common and fleeting public moments on the street.


Made from ash and placed directly in the path of pedestrian traffic, each drawing disintegrates and disappears quickly under the rush of ongoing urban life, echoing the temporal and transitory nature of the moments documented.
