Urban Canvas

A call from the NYC Department of Buildings for a series of supergraphics to hide construction fences in New York City.

Supersized bicycle locks, windblown plastic bags and chain link combine to form unexpected landscapes that celebrate random moments of city living. Sized to the changing scales of the city and of the pedestrian, the artwork is a metaphor for the inventive appropriation integral to the New York experience.
