These are primarily images from Mary Jones Flâneuse, an exhibit at the Ralph Arnold Gallery, Loyola University, Chicago, in March of 2012. For the exhibit I walked a four mile stretch of Sheridan Road, recording the evolution of a vital and celebrated Chicago thoroughfare as well as my personal history as a Rogers Park resident. The windows of the gallery were coated with cling material  produced from my digital files as well as polystyrene cutouts of walking personas encountered along the way. 

Viewing the exhibit from the street inevitably incorporates one's own reflections in the windows. The exhibit is my reflection on contemporary flânerie, an experience of seeing and being seen, or both losing and finding of self.
