Paper Pavement: The History of Miami’s Streets Preserved Through Art
To Gilmore, the project is a “way of being in three different time
periods at once.”
He described how the prints reflect the past by showing the history of
the streets and their use. The steamrolling process then records the
streets in their current historical moment, while the artist and viewers
of the work are poignantly aware that the area will be dramatically
changed in the imminent future.
Due to the tactile nature of the prints, “the projects ended up being in
great conversation with each other,” says Ricardo Mor of MCAD. “This
way, people who are blind will be able to experience the art as well.
