It was a mad rush to the opening, but Context/Shift was finished in time! The opening was a mad blur of friends and colleagues and beer everywhere! It was an amazing turn-out and I want to thank Nicola Twilley of Edible Geography and Geoff Manaugh of BLDGBLOG for their vision and their guidance throughout the LoQ studio and the weeks leading up to the opening. Congratulations also to the other participants in the exhibition - I'm biased, but I think the work is superlative.
Above all, I really need to thank Alejandro Sanchez for all of his help and encouragement throughout the project. It really could not have happened without his hard work.
Also deserving thanks are Storefront for Art and Architecture, the New York State Council on the Arts, Polshek Partnership Architects, studioMode, Universal Steel Fabricators and especially my parents, Gail and Larry. Then, there's the other helpers without whom the project would never have been finished in time: Kingman Brewster, Mark Gardner, John Tinmouth, Tom Chang, Jarrett Pelletier, Susan Rodriguez and Joanne Sliker. Thanks so much to all! I am humbled by your generosity.
