The installation is located in a decidedly urban neighborhood, the contrast in the content and context is the fuel for the work. The photographs are contributed by 20 artists who are or have been working in New York city. Many of the artists are not primarily photographers, many work in other media, though they have lent their understanding of suburbia to this installation.

I envisioned the installation as resembling someone who might cut up a painting on canvas and piece it back together. In this case I invited these artists to contribute their sense of suburbia in the form of specific visual signifiers denoting the suburbian experience. Some of the artists have never lived in the suburbs and some always have. The pieces of suburbia gathered here function in a similar manner to individual brushstrokes in a painting. The juxtapositions present interesting divergent and poetic moments, deriving from a diverse source of visual thinkers.
--Max Yawney, Curator
