QCA ArtHotel Residency
April through June of 2017, I participated in the Queens Council on the Arts ArtHotel residency program. I was granted a room to work in (emptied of furniture) on the second floor. Situated in a commercially zoned industrial area in Long Island City, it was isolated from the massive towers and residential streets closer to transportation hubs. I filled the room with images from journeys to and from the hotel, shot with a point and shoot camera, like a tourist. I localized the blank slate of a hotel room by linking the postcard view of Manhattan to the neighborhood outside.
