Hello There Friend

“Moment to Moment” Artist Project Series

The Thing Quarterly x Levi’s Made & Crafted
Los Angeles, CA and Tokyo, Japan


“Hello There Friend” is an ongoing series of works in which I go for a walk in an unfamiliar place with someone. On this walk, my companions collect details of their surroundings and present them to me. The result is a conversation through the often overlooked details of an unfamiliar place. On these walks, I took pictures of the objects which were then turned into billboards in the area that they were created in.

My collaborators in Los Angeles were: Beatrice Red Star Fletcher, Kelly Bishop, and Jenni Stenson.  My collaborators in Tokyo were: Tomoko Yamashita Smith, Leo Smith, Hana Smith, and Beatrice Red Star Fletcher.
