Q: is it UNAMERICAN to be UNFAMOUS?

This code-based artwork is a 21st century kinetic iconography, an assemblage where the third dimension is time. In this latest iteration of a peripatetic & evolving work, the icons are the unsung of Brooklyn. ‘Found faces’ re-mix with moving visual detritus scavenged from today’s analog and digital alleyways.

Beginning with a ‘soft launch’ at Kingsborough Art Museum on March 17th, this artwork in its completed form will take over the museum a year later in spring, 2023. During those 12 months, the work will evolve with the help of the Brooklyn community, who will be asked to nominate photos for inclusion in the artwork.
