Homage to a profoundly influential book on the social implications of architecture. The background is made of patterns I acquired during research for my first job, as an assistant editor for the Vogue Sewing Book.

Teabag, hair, grasses, shreds of my mother’s letters, dress patterns, my calligraphy, fragment of disintegrating flat from Chicago Lyric Opera ca. 1890.
