Last year artist Drew Hamilton showed his "Street-Corner Project" at a group exhibition at BRIC House, where curators have announced that the "hyperreallistic study of a corner bodega" is still on view in the hallway. The corner scene—which also includes a food cart—is a quarter-scaled reproduction of the corner of Graham Avenue and Meserole Street in Bushwick, which Hamilton could see from his old apartment, and it's incredibly detailed.
"All posters and bits of garbage were carefully photographed and measured, then printed to scale. By referencing a specific vantage point frozen in time, Hamilton forces the viewer to see from that unique, individuated perspective where no detail—not even the mailbox covered with graffiti or the Fritos bag in the trash—is too small or sordid."
