Product Description

The exact origin of these fixtures is unknown. Their materials accessible, its motif historical. Its application in the city is prolific, its appearance dated, the problem it aims to solve timeless. A community responds to their environment, leaving a trace on the landscape. This action operates as a time-stamped visual reverberation in the city, more present than any one architect/designer.


Book published at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht, NL. Printed and bound with Jo Frenken in the Charles Nypels lab. Photographs taken from 2014–2018 in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, NYC. Essay by Jordan Hruska.
