A primary strength of the series is that it frames gentrification as an industry. The literal materials used in revitalization efforts are used to critique gentrification, often in subtle ways. In "Of Vultures and Blackbirds," four target-branded bird silhouettes sit atop a black swoosh that cuts across concrete gray color blocks. "No Trespassing" signs jut out from the surface. A red line echoes the red text of the sign. The work is a warning and a proclamation; the viewer can imagine who is being targeted, and who is being kept out of newly acquired territories. But the work never explicitly defines a specific villain or victim. Rather, by broadly focusing the signifiers of gentrification as subjective markers, viewers are able to situate themselves, and their own lived experiences into personal readings of the collection. It's a potent rumination on the quiet brutality of gentrification.
