This series is located at a site that I’ve named "The Playground", a waterfront lot used as a dump by the NYC Parks Department located at the border of Greenpoint and Williamsburg. One cold winter morning, I made a series of sculptures by arranging only materials found at the site and documented it with one roll of film. While I was creating these sculptures, I felt the weight of the site. Having an unrestricted view of Manhattan and being surrounded by new development, I could only imagine the property value. But what is the value of a waterfront property during a climate crisis?
