The Facade of a Block

Book, 172 pages
April 2018

This book attempts to behave as its subject, the facade of a street block in Providence, RI. Overwhelmingly characterized by abandon and various stages of decay, the visual remains on this block are the result of a tug-of-war between attraction and conceal-ment. Attraction witnessed in gestures such as advertisements, signage, and graffiti. Concealment as removal, neglect, and natural decay. Progressively distorting and evolving on top of each other, the fragmented leftovers fade into coexistence.
