A video piece installed in the laundromat where it was partially filmed. Projected on a hanging bedsheet for customers to encounter, the abstract imagery develops into a portrait of four tiny shops in a block of San Francisco’s Mission district. The shops are as diverse as their neighborhood: a Chinese-run laundry, a Salvadoran hair salon, a hipster tattoo parlor, an art gallery. They are linked by location and by their inhabitants’ loving attention to beautifying the surfaces they work with. (7-minute video projection, 2009)
