Several sidewalk structures throughout manhattan which remotely resemble houses were wallpapered with images of architectural siding: a telephone booth, a parking lot booth, and a newsstand. They were not grouped together, but were located throughout Manhattan, giving the project a wide audience. Adhesive
vinyl was applied to the outside, resurfacing each with a graphic image of traditional building material such
as brick, shingles, and stone.
reSurfacing uses the practices of advertising posters to reinvest small street structures with their material
and structural history by developing a visual identity for these structures which corresponds to their use and physicality. In addition, activities which occur on the street are given new prominence, highlighting cultural practice which often goes overlooked. At the same time, reSurfacing creates a dialog between drawing and sculpture within the context of everyday life.
