Regeneration: 3 Photo Murals in the Castro

2355 Market Street

I have two large photo murals up now in my own San Francisco neighborhood at 2355 Market Street. At the beginning of shelter-in-place I photographed the California poppies in my backyard to stay grounded and sane. I then transformed the images using a program that my wife wrote, inspired by the patterns of toxic pollutants on the surface of the Gowanus Canal, recreating them with code. This was a collaboration that we had begun a year earlier while in Brooklyn, and the surreal nature of the resulting images felt like a perfect reflection on our current reality.

The project continued to develop in the wake of George Floyd's brutal murder, and in turn, I have been evolving, learning, and engaging in difficult conversations. I shared the complex progression of the murals on Facebook and Instagram, and will continue to share how it evolves.

The murals are part of the Art For Essential Workers project, organized by 100 Days Action, in partnership with the Facebook AIR Program. I could never have done it without them! I also want to thank SF Landmark and Castro Merchants for all their help and support. If you are in the Bay Area and get a chance to visit the murals in person, please share your photos!
