I Am 20 Years Older

Comment card written in response to an exhibit by artist Maxx Sizeler at 2426 Bradish Place on May 19, 2007.\r\n\r\nComplete text of card: \"I am 20 years older...It\'s almost two years now and I should feel like myself. I feel the impact of this catastrophe has aged me. Many of my artist friends and teacher friends have a \"Katrina-belyy\" from two-years of stres-related easting. In two weeks my home of ten years will be torn down because I just found out the foundation was rotten...Now it\'s just too expensive to rebuild..I thought I was over it...Still I grieve and eat too much. [signature illegible]\"\r\n\r\n\"NEIGHBORHOODS: 2426 BRADISH PLACE\" was a multidisciplinary installation, the third in a series, that took place in the gutted ground floor of the home of Michelle Levine and Clay Thomas on May 19th, 2007. Michelle is an artist who is currently rebuilding her house and studio in the Tulane/Gravier neighborhood. Through the use of interviews with neighbors, soundscapes, live music, drawing, photography, and sculpture, this event confronted the range of issues the community is experiencing as they revitalize this neighborhood.\r\n
