A door stays standing amidst the mounds presiding over a few linoleum tiles, a brass door knob and a half-buried sash window, remnants of our Ludlow Street apartment. Lenin still resides on top of a Norfolk Street tenement, unfazed and now with an unobstructed view towards Wall Street.

Detail of my studio, the hole inspired by the Curiosity Mars rover's recent drilling of 32 holes into Martian rock to acquire mineral samples, which could be used to search for signs of past life on the Red Planet.

In this rendition, the studio lights turned on and the heating pipes re-installed. From the ongoing series of CGI inkjet prints entitled "The Artist's Studio as Encryption Lab", this the first one staged in the Chinatown studio, overlooking the Sara D. Roosevelt Park. The Egyptian scribe is a photogrammetry model of a sculpture that I photographed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo in 2019. The stone reliefs with the symbolic figures normally adorn the Swiss National Bank in Zurich.
