Downtown unfolds in cuts between the artist’s daily encounters with her favorite neighbor, notes from her reading, and a particular camera walk from her home in Chinatown through the neighborhoods of Lower Manhattan. A photoessay that neither illustrates the narrative nor explains the photos, the subject of Downtown emerges among texts and images to form a work that revels in the questions, contradictions, and vitality that are New York.
Magnetic is an artist’s book series of image/text collage. Photographs of New York City are combined with short stories, scraps of found text and brief passages from the artist's reading that together suggest the city in a form appropriated from cinematic scripts and storyboards, design briefs, flash fiction, and poetry.
