The Changing Brickface of the City is a mapping and documentary photography project that takes as its point of departure the textured aerated cement tile façade of the artist’s house in Brooklyn. My exploration of the five boroughs of New York City in search of architectural cognates for my own home is a mediation on class, fashion, materialism, travel and the built environment. This unscientific and essentially arbitrary charting of the prevalence of one particular pattern of the siding product commonly known as “brickface,” in this case a flesh-pink, beige and dusty rose amalgam of faux-stone tiles meant to evoke a rancho in the southwestern desert, becomes a window onto the economic ebbs and flows of the city, its gentrification and forgotten corners.
