Germania Flats

• Work Statement:

 

Germania Flats is a cycle of aerial views of the Gulf of Naples with the Mt Vesuvius volcano and environs. A digital elevation model (DEM), is mapped with Lower East Side sidewalk textures and concrete graffiti and rendered in a 3D program.

The title refers to the cornice of two semidetached houses on Houston and 2nd Avenue that spelled Germania Flats. The infamous Mars Bar was in the second building, which was demolished shortly after I completed this series.
