"Jamaica Flux: Workspace and Windows 2007"

These altered books were created for a public art project that sought to bring art
out of a gallery space and into the community. For my project, I met with older
community residents in their homes, talking with them about their lives,
photographing them and using their words and images to make a group of
altered books. The altered books were displayed in a local bookstore.
This project was recently featured on a Queens-based blog.
