A playful disorientation happens when the perspectival platform is juxtaposed with an ascending subway track. I immediately thought of the train as a roller coaster, than recalled a dream with this very machine, but couldn’t quite distinguish what was an actual memory or personalized fiction. #NYC #subway #btrain #Manhattan

The materiality and texture of the brass-finished brick  at the  34 Street BQ Station is both intriguing and unsettling. It seems to have equal parts subway ceramic tile, utilitarian brick and mortar wall, and soft rococco in its genes. Meanwhile, vintage brick signage signalling cross streets is completely absent; the singular brass brick wall enough to contextualize the traveller. #NYC #subway #wall #architecture #Manhattan #34thstreet
