Toward, by Ashaki M. Jackson, Bhanu Kapil, Jen Hofer, Mg Roberts

map by Tommy Poole


We responded to the word “neighbourhood”: to evoke worlds. Worlds in turn evoke us. Two of these neighbourhoods are in Los Angeles, one in the Bay Area (California), and one in Hayes, Middlesex (U.K.).  Invocations, works, the proximal, quartered maps.

To ward. To leak. To write.

To materialize: in four places.

At once. Dispersing. Into proximity.

From afar.
