[flo#4] - LIC
Homefront Gallery, Queens, New York
2010

[flo#4] is a site-specific large-scale photographic collage that chronicles the radical gentrification glaringly evident in the area surrounding The Homefront. It visualizes the dissonance between the neighborhood’s low-rise brick industrial and residential buildings and the slew of imposing high-rise glass mega buildings growing seemingly overnight all around them. A cacophony of change abounds: extensive street diversions and construction, structures rising and falling, parks and street furniture appearing, sidewalk repairs, and subway station upgrades. The streets are ripe with brightly colored freshly painted shapes and lines, a code that only construction workers can translate. Conversely, buildings display the vestiges of time: fading handmade signs warning of obsolete violations, worn metal doors to shuttered garages, house numbers scribbled in sharpie, “sidewalk closed” at nearly every turn.
