"The intention of the "Today" Project, which will consist of two
installations in New York and New Orleans, is to express love and hope,
and forge a bond between the people who call each city home. Both
installations are designed to create a visual portal where two
communities can metaphorically gaze into each other's worlds.
"Today" in New Orleans is a mixed media mural comprised of wheat-paste photo of two doors and stoops of NYC brownstones. This is a symbol of life in Brooklyn. The word "enter" is spray painted around the wheat-paste mural and integrated into it. This piece was installed in the Holy Cross area of the Lower 9th Ward. The process of visiting the city, finding a site, and connecting with the people who live there has been unforgettable and highly influential. Including the people in the process took the graffitti, which is generally considered "art vandalism", to a deeper level.
The Brooklyn sister piece will be a wheat-paste and graffiti mural of a Lower 9th Ward stoop leading to an absent house - a symbol of the struggle of New Orleans." Maxime Demetrio
