Full Service Island is a collaborative public art installation/video project created with Christy Speakman for Art in Odd Places, SIGN:2009, in NYC. The installation site at the Chelsea Carwash in Manhattan became both studio and stage. Two large-scale videos were projected onto existing glass windows of the station. The videos echoed traces of daily acts at the station and explored imagery of impervious surfaces, runoff, soapsuds and the force of water in a highly urban environment.
