French Culture Institute Interview with SBB

I’m originally from a neighborhood and a city that values new walls (buildings) over old. NYC has a habit of building over buildings. As a child I was surrounded by graffiti and open lots that were commandeered by the community and transformed into gardens and that is what got my juices flowing, what if I could transform a wall’s identity. If I could repurpose it for a conversation about space and place, how exciting a physical and linguistic discussion we could be having. Not a wall that separates but one that welcomes; one that showcases the people who came to our shores and those who are still trying.
