Good on NY Mag for dreaming up this feature, and for choosing you to kick it off. I know of few people who appreciate the city more than you do, Michael, and you read it well.

Thanks, too, for this behind-the-scenes elucidation. I was kind of wondering how that had gone. As a somewhat regular interlocutor of yours, I’m aware that you’re very good on your feet and capable of making sometimes surprising associations quite quickly (which is why I always love talking design with you). But reading this, somehow, I was having a hard time imagining you simply spewing out these interpretations. Now I see that these questions were asked, answered, circled around, re-asked, which makes for a certain density in the finished product.

One thing I might question: I’m not so sure that SoHo is the best gauge of the state of political art in the city. Around the time this country initiated its war of choice against Iraq, and again around the time of the RNC, I saw no shortage of (often blunt and angry) political visuals around the city. The vivid, solipsistic and ultimately apolitical images culled from SoHo don’t necessarily strike me as being representative of a larger trend (though I certainly could be wrong); I have to wonder if other neighborhoods wouldn’t reflect a different political story.

Congrats! Must be cool to see your name in print like that…

Looks like quite the fascinating project, and I’ll definitely make it a point to try and find a copy of the magazine up here in Toronto when it’s out.
