here we have wall street.

here we have wall street. here we have a billionaire as mayor. here we have 47,475 sheltered homeless and roughly 3000 unsheltered homeless. here we have the most expensive retail rental space in the world (fifth ave) coupled with a minimum wage at $7.25 that keeps working people well below poverty level. here we have a mayor who calls himself a philanthropist. a mayor who believes in the “great american dream.”

and then this. a portrait of “power” and its underside, –  of sorts –  of a person caught in a location of  time and place. and how this power yields and does not yield to a kind of decay and decomposition. how to show that? in relation to me? because i m always here. always in relation. like goya painting himself into the  portrait of the royals. implicit. implicated.
