How to tell stories of five Boroughs in visual narratives? How to make them all fit the same format despite their diverse geography? How to research such a megalomaniac project? just one answer: impossible. I enjoy to research stories but one life time cannot be enough for a city that is constantly changing. Since 1985, I have lived and worked in New York City, as a tour guide for 15 years, then as an artist. I am curious for stories from the past and the present. In my free time I bike to explore different neighborhoods. My memory (that often distorts reality) and my personal experiences shape my subjective vision of the city. While cutting, I live scenarios from real or imagined stories to represent an energy. Some elements are easily recognizable. Others are open for interpretation. Sharing stories expands our universe.

Papercuttings: lasercut on 100% cotton paper, numbered edition of 500
