Two Second Love Stories

Kodak backlit print, 50 x 26 inches


Two Second Love Stories (Jamaica Flux) consists of limited edition Tshirts that combine images and text from the news media – both drawn from the context of Jamaica – into the fotonovela format. The content of the fotonovelas is derived from imagery of Jamaica Avenue, interiors of the Jamaica Furniture Store, and text extracted from news stories about the neighborhood. The T-shirts allow a documentation of the daily life of the neighborhood to infiltrate other places as they are worn. The T-shirts were distributed to visitors at JCAL gallery during Jamaica Flux’s artist reception on October 23.
