NY Well_Urban Impressions

 

Few weeks before September 11th 2001 I went scouting around several districts in Manhattan looking for bas-relief signaling to reproduce via impressions on plasticine and printmaking rubbing drawings on tracing paper.

Some of those urban elements are already gone or not accessible to the public anymore, these prints are the lasting memories of their tridimensional surface, in the manner of a Shroud of Turin for New York City.
