BASE and RISE are part of “Four Letter Word Projects”—an ongoing series of one-night-shows—that I organize in many different kinds of spaces. This one is in my apartment. BASE is drawn from ideas about floors and extends to include bases of all kinds: architectural, social, economic, and chemical. RISE is drawn from ideas of walls and from things which envelop, protect and make surfaces speak messages. BASE and RISE were inspired by a flood, an eviction threat and finally new floors and walls in my apartment on St. Nicholas Avenue where I have lived, worked and come to know a great community of artists.
