Untitled (Set for a Homestead)

Untitled (Set for a Homestead) combines a scale replica of Philadelphia's  Market-Frankford elevated train tracks with a series of architectural panels and materials salvaged from a rowhouse in Philadelphia’s Kensington neighborhood. This work took shape as I was in the process of buying and renovating a home in Kensington, and considering the clash of tumbledown old buildings with cheap, flashy new development.
