This project started in the Providence Public Library, where I was asked to explore the Special Collections Department. Fascinated with leading lines that filled up many pages of old typography books, these lines then led me to explore the atlases,which I carefully examined lines and letters to locate coordinates.

These posters are a representation of a flight taken from London’s ?Heathrow Airport to New York City (JFK). In between departure and arrival are the many flights taking place at the same time, each with their ?own destination.

Parking garages are at the heart of every urban center. At the end of the day they show grit of the city, the oil spills, the tire tread marks, and the remnants of machine presence.

The parking structure I chose was abstract, slightly unfathomable, a bit dangerous, yet beautiful. It took up a large portion of the street and yet conspicuous in nothing so much as its emptiness and banality.

After surveying the building inside and out, I began to draw my own impression of the spaces. I then reverted back to the actual photographs and strip away some of the structural elements of the architecture to isolate areas and create new images.

We can read and navigate cities in different ways: walking through them at street level, or seeing them in aerial view when we fly overhead, but we cannot see all the views at once. I began with drawing these structures from a bird’s eye view in search of letters and words created within the city grid. By stripping these buildings from their environment to show when left free standing, they read as letters, built next to each other due to their shapes

This is a formal survey of buildings in San Francisco where grid-iron plans meet. As if typography, these buildings complete the city grid this first animation shows these structures individually and in the order in which they located depending on their adjoining structure second animation shows them as a collection aimed at understanding one in term of the other, concentrating on their relationship when stripped away from the grid. third animation: my initial hope was to find that these buildings actually spelled something out when seen from above, but I had no such luck in San Francisco, so I made one last animation

Video and poster series

This January when flying over New York City, for a brief moment when peering out of the airplane window, the city appeared holistic, yet I knew once I hit the ground, this narrow linear extent in space would not be experienced from that view again. There I was with my camera, I sought out a way to enumerate as many angles and views that I could. How could I possibly emulate these views and shearing layers of time while walking the streets? Beginning with taking photos, I then took these images and started to cut through them, zooming in on angles and depth and composing them in a cubist manner. These animations demonstrate the ever-changing urban geometries within a short time frame.

Final compositions were then made into large scale posters. size: 35.6 x 50.4
