The Navy Yard, simultaneously situated within the landscape of Brooklyn, while operating outside of city life, was once an active United States naval base that has now fallen from its original grandeur during the first and second World Wars. Admiral’s Row—houses, hospital and cemetery built in the late 1800s, once stood as symbols of position and power, have now fallen in on themselves. Barbed wire protects them while they rot and become devoured by vines. The Brooklyn Historical Society and the New York Historical Society provided me with records of the Navy Yard’s 100+ years through old photos of steamships and warship launchings. I continued the project at the Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, CA, in related architecture of Fort Barry, a former Military base from the same era, and came to include images such as the Nike Missile site below my studio.
