Homes are often the place of terrible pain and violence.

Ten years ago I was gentrified out of my downtown NYC loft, my home of 40 years. It was a beautiful space, a serene and inspiring sanctuary from the outside world. The owner couldn’t legally get me to leave. His managing agent tried many devious and destructive ways to make me feel unsafe and traumatized. Among the methods was having his workmen “accidentally” punch a hole in the wall of my bathroom to destroy my new glass medicine cabinet. Soon after, a fire exploded into the bedroom where I was sleeping.  The fire department ruled it as “accidental negligence” after they found oily rags and sawdust under the electric socket in the common hallway next to my wall. I was fortunate to escape with only smoke inhalation.

Multiple images of the “broken” historic architectural view from my loft’s front window are composited into the digital image of my glass-strewn and shattered medicine cabinet. Cotton fibers and torn pieces of sandpaper are then collaged onto the archival digital print.
