About Listings Project Special Edition Cheshire Plate
The Cheshire grin is a motif I have been exploring for the last few years. I am interested in it's simultaneous references to Lewis Carrol's infamous cat and the iconic grin of blackface minstrelsy, both equally silly and sinister, much like the grin itself as it disappears and reappears.
Stephanie and I have been friends for over a decade now. In fact, she was one of the first artists to befriend me when I moved to New York. Through Stephanie's network of friends and colleagues, I met everybody!
Several years ago while I was preparing to leave the country for a few months, I noticed Stephanie was forwarding emails about space for rent. I asked her if she would pass around amongst her network that I was looking for someone to sublet my place. Very shortly after, I had a sublettor and Listing Project was official!
Since then I have referred countless people from Germany, Hungary, Japan, Poland, UK and across the US to the list and I know several others who've done the same. I believe our relative social proximity to each other makes the Listing Project feel like a friendly DIY classifieds where friends can help other friends find proper and convenient living situations. I love that it still feels personal.
