prescribed procedure for the obsessive-compulsive
Project description: To draw a continuous trail of individual chalk faces approximately 8 inches in diameter and 12 inches apart from each other on the sidewalks of New York City beginning at the south corner of 14th street and 10th Avenue and ending at the south corner of 14th street and Avenue C.
One aim of this project is to make the public aware of how an obsessive-compulsive behavior can be a prescribed procedure used to show the transient and ephemeral qualities of time, while manipulating space through marks on this earth.

el Museo (s)files at Lehman College Gallery. On view until January 2012
El Museo del Barrio’s sixth biennial features the most innovative, cutting-edge art created by Latino, Caribbean, and Latin American artists currently working in the greater New York area. This year’s edition takes on a broad exploration of the visual energy, events, and aesthetics of the street. The exhibition spreads all over the city, showcasing a record 75 emerging artists at seven venues.
The installation at Lehman features imagery by a number of artists that share an affinity for illustration and the narrative force of images. Thinking of the exhibition as a picturesque walk through the city, it conceptualizes the street as a kind of visual library; an opportunity to sample people, objects, costumes, and cityscapes.
