HUMANSCAPE  (in progress)

The eleven panels that comprise HUMANSCAPE will each feature a large portrait of an individual with whom I encountered by chance. Our conversations were brief, but each person agreed to being recorded for about 30 seconds. In a gallery setting, these audio files will be accessible by scanning a QR code.


This project examines the tension between the city and the people who must endure its challenging environment, especially those individuals most underrepresented in society.

All panels measure 50×50 inches.
Media: oil and ink pens on Stonehenge paper
