left out (2013)
left out is a photographic survey of land commons in New Orleans, observed and mapped between 2008 - 2013. This project created a record of the transient rental economy that boomed after the cities levee system tragically failed in 2008. I worked with fabrication studio in Lafayette, LA, Ideazoo, to create prototypes of the discarded items made of ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) plastic. Mimicking the process of how objects are produced and brought to market, these 3-D images retroactively bring the objects from grave to cradle and offer an unoffical and incomplete marker of the invisible loss of community and civil infastructure.
