ABOUT A WEEK BEFORE before COVID-19 emerged in Wuhan and in the news, I went down to Chinatown in New York where the Lunar New Year was being celebrated. Fire crackers, streamers, and confetti were blowing up everywhere in riotous celebration. I was moved to take photographs of all the celebratory gunk strewn all over the street. The abstract images were like modern-day Pollock Drip Paintings. But, in the lines formed by the trash and fallen streamers, you could envision shapes, like the animals imagined by stretching lines between stars to form constellations. At this time, however, I didn't see years of the Cat, Dog, or Rabbit, nor Capricorns, Leos or Taurus, but, rather, entirely new zodiaks and constallations. So I named each work for a corresponding future year, so to mark them as signifiers of a time that changed everything. These are large scale, archival quality digital C-prints in limited edition of five only, available for exhibition or purchase framed or unframed. It was only after the corona epidemic swept over New York that I came to fully appreciate their significance.
