I beam support: structuring space, sound and reliant. Everyone here is a speech bubble and I am the blurb of a witness, my open face open to interpretation.


A collaboration between myself and painter Douglas Degges inspired by our separate lives in New York City. This is a collection of two maps of the New York City Subway system—one visual, one textual, both inspired by specific abstraction.

Degges' collection of low relief carvings investigate how abstraction can render specific and autobiographical content anonymous, including five paintings created from my photos and in conjunction with my writing which shifts between the personal and general, bringing details into view to challenge memory and identity.

Originally published August 5, 2016 by Territory, a digital literary project about maps and other strange objects, Borough Body was exhibited in 2017 at The Factory, a gallery in Seattle, WA and printed as a risographed chapbook by Cold Cube Press
