I worked with Architreasures to create a community focused & engaged installation on 4 empty lots on Chicago ave in West Humboldt Park. The installation was created from aluminum framing bolted into the ground, with 2 layers of CNC fabricated aluminum Die-bond paneling.

 The 4 lots had a street running through between them, and I wanted to create a positive dialogue on each side of the street. On the west side it reads “keep it simple, keep trying, keep moving, keep learning, keep pushing, keep going, keep it up, keep at it“, on the east side, it reads “make it now, make a life, make it good, make it matter, make moments, make memories, make meaning, make anything“.
