Building 1 / Neighbors
"Neighbors" is about my unusual relationship with my "neighbors" downstairs. My studio was in the Pfizer building in Brooklyn. There were three holes through the floor in my studio; thus, I could see the space downstairs. They were here before I came into the studio. Because of the strange holes, I started a series of actions trying to interact with people downstairs. This interaction is not through verbal communication, but through specific objects and actions to convey messages and information.
My "neighbors" and I have never had face-to-face direct conversation or contact. However, because of the strange architectural structure, the two groups of people who had no intersection in society were connected in a strange way. We break down the barriers of language, culture, ethnicity, and social identity to create an unusual but authentic relationship.
