Documenting the Mission District by intersection.
In many ways 24th Street embodies all that is dynamic, energetic, and contested about the Mission District. In 2010 I mapped 24th Street between Valencia to Vermont streets by creating a screenprint for each of its twenty-four intersections in this span, including the alleys and side streets.
Taken together, these images capture a snapshot of the neighborhood and its residents at one moment in history. The intent is to present a visual record of the Mission as a community of communities that is made strong and vital by its diversity.

The Installation
Valencia to Vermont is an installation that portrays the Mission District's Twenty Fourth Street in the year 2009. Spanning thirty feet, over three hundred oak panels are arranged in a grid around a series of multi-layer screen prints that depict each of the 24 intersections.
The project was commissioned by Local Mission Eatery in the Fall of 2009. Scheduled to open his new restaurant early the next year, owner Yaron Milgrom wanted to develop a centerpiece for the space that focused on the community of Twenty-Fourth Street. The idea of documenting each intersection in order was a strategy to address the highly linear space as well as an opportunity to depict the neighborhood with a degree of comprehensiveness.
Coordinating with architects Kelli Franz and Seth Pare-Maye, we designed an installation that was influenced by the spirit of the neighborhood and incorporated materials relevant to the restaurant design. To execute the project, I trained four outstanding people who helped me pull over one thousand prints over the course of a two month production schedule.
The installation is permanently fixed on the eastern wall of Local Mission Eatery at 3111 24th Street (in between Folsom and Shotwell).
