Since 1992 the San Francisco Arts Commission has been enlisting local artists to create original posters for the kiosks along Market Street between Van Ness Avenue and the Embarcadero. The Art on Market Street Kiosk Poster Series provides round-the-clock access to contemporary art for thousands of pedestrians. The artists, who work in a variety of media to reflect urban life, have included such well-known SF artists as Seyed Alavi, Megan Wilson, Kara Maria, Katherine Aoki, Amanda Hughen, Owen Smith, Jason Jagel, and Mark Brest van Kempen. The Bedford exhibition pays homage to this successful and model public art project by featuring thirty of the original 6ft by 4ft posters.

Where Lives Come to Die
Video, 3′31
San Francisco, 2009

This piece is based on a poem by Scott V. from Oakland. Scott and I have been friends and collaborators for a long time. I saw him perform this piece live and people were laughing, confused, and depressed all at once. It was amazing. After collaborating on a long-form experimental video, we decided why not keep the momentum going and turn the poem into a video?
