Traces of the Metairie Canal

 The route marked below took place on February 20th, 2010 between the hours of 2:30-4:00PM… 

It began at 440 South St. Patrick Street (Mid-City) and ended at 1800 Deslonde (9th Ward), New Orleans, LA. It’s too hard to say how faithful to the events of leading up to Hurrican Katrina and beyond – but it nevertheless tries to embody an experience and an impression…
Re-Building Route (via Google): from Mid-City to the Ninth Ward.

 A trip through the high-end and decimated neighbor hood of the greater New Orleans area. 

From Metairie Canal to Franklin Ave.

Road-Phenomenology: Art as Death

Blue Sky, Blue

All That Jazz...

"All art is like death, an inertia of the instant, and thus a speed change in the order of time as it is lived." - Paul Virilio

  If indeed, as Paul Virilio suggests, “all art is like death, an inertia of the instant, and thus a speed change in the order of time as it is lived,” then art itself must be a task in need of constant resurrection…Just as in the face of life, art turns towards death, in the face of death, art turns towards consciousness and the life of the mind.
