Woodward Avenue Alchemy

`I was asked to participate in an exhibition called Intersection, which was organized to highlight the history of Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Woodward Avenue is the main surface street artery in Detroit, and joins the downtown with Bloomfield Hills, a tony neighborhood Northwest of the struggling city. My response, documented here, was to photograph Woodward Avenue in the reflection of a ‘coin’ silver spoon, given to me by my mother. Afterwards, I flattened the spoon in a roller mill, and fabricated a whistle. I returned to Woodward Avenue and blew the whistle once before retiring it.
