A summit is a local point of elevation maps an expedition to the mountain peaks of Crown Heights, Brooklyn in the winter of 2011. Photographs and text installed in the window at Gridspace shift in geologic and geographic scale and space, recreating the recent past of a neighborhood landscape. Piles of snow on the streets surrounding the gallery become summits in the White Mountains, the Great Smokies, the Rockies, the Transantarctic Mountains and the Quarles Range.

A sign marks a summit
2012
signs of varying dimensions installed over two miles in Peekskill, NY
inkjet printed vinyl on coroplast

A sign marks a summit was a self-guided trail which wandered the grid of Peekskill’s sidewalks, streets, longitude and latitude up to a local summit. From trailheads at both the Peekskill train station and Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, markers attached to street signposts led pedestrian hikers on a theoretical mountain climb, ending at Summit Avenue. Interpretive panels pointed out features along the way, including sidewalk geology, flora and fauna; mountains related to streets on the trail; and other digressions from the found and imagined landscape.

Public Utility Trail Network re-interprets the marks ConEdison and other public utilities paint onto sidewalks around the city as trail markers in a network of hiking/walking trails for pedestrians. For Conflux, trails around the HQ and in the East Village were mapped out. Small, temporary signs were attached to existing sign posts around the neighborhood, indicating trail heads and the particular color or types of markings to follow. Free maps of the trail in the East Village were available at each trail head and by clicking here.
