Start Together features a labyrinth constructed with lumber and the orange construction fencing that litters Chicago’s West Side. The structure’s form is indebted to Hélio Oiticica’s Penetrables (1961), which expands on the modernist ideals that prioritize color and form as communicative tools.
This project builds on previous investigations of the fence, a ubiquitous structure that is treated here as a complex symbol for the city and its many contradictions, representing a border between public and private, wealth and poverty. The fence indicates what is built, vacant, or developing, embodying a script for social relations and demarcating zones of ownership and belonging.

I am in a commissioned portfolio and exhibition, “Chornobyl: Impact & Beyond,” for the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art on display in the East Gallery.
On April 26, 1986, the Chornobyl nuclear disaster occurred in Pripyat, Ukraine. This was the worst nuclear power plant catastrophe in history the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art is dedicating the exhibition spaces of the entire museum to two exhibits addressing the theme, “Chornobyl 30 Years Later.”
