A block in NYC

2016, tracing paper, color paper, rubber cement, thread, 6.5″x7″

I decided to cut different photographs I took of NYC and make a basket weave out of them because they reminded me of the graffiti and posters that are stacked on top of each other around NYC. Layering the photos was a way of creating a palimpsest on a smaller level. The change and history of NYC as a whole inspired me to create multiple layers of the basket weave because NYC has also attained many layers throughout the years.
