Abstract/Artist's Statement

From my twelfth-floor apartment in the Manhattanville Projects, I look down at the valley that constitutes the 125th Street Fault and the trestle that supports the 1 Train. The fault line and the trestle symbolize a fracture in the continuity of Harlem on the y-axis of Broadway separating the newly constructed Columbia University Manhattanville Campus from the Manhattanville Projects and the General Grant Houses. This fracture is exacerbated by the physical geographic feature of the fault, the man-made trestle, as well as a division that was drawn by Columbia University and its disruption of the justice system that had existed in the neighborhood beforehand.
