   Letters   of   Support      is a series inspired by   letters   written on behalf of a defendant by his family members. Addressed to a judge, the texts describe positive memories of the defendant and are presented in the hope of lessening a criminal sentence. By emphasizing an individual’s identity as distinct from the accusations that define him in court,      Letters   of   Support      serves as a counterweight to the bureaucratic anonymity of other courtroom documents.

 These floor plans reflect the layout of the single-family home in the southwest quadrant of Miami, Florida, where the artist spent his childhood.  Aiming to recreate the house's layout through the memories of those who either lived there or regularly visited, the artist interviewed his mother, aunt, uncles and cousins and requested from each of them a floor plan drawn entirely from memory.
