A space to memorialize an overlooked west side using a ghost bike motif that is dotted along the street curbs.

This work forms, visions, dreams, paradise, and memorials: weaving and embedding fabric in the fence like a loom it with strips of white satin cloth, and contrasting it with white opaque grocery store bags that become signs of remembrance and plastic flowers shrines. The strips extend dangle from the fence edges - braided, crawling into an “amphitheater” form to perform.
