~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Through the cracks, the building breathes, producing consecutive echo chambers. Paint chips fall from the walls, creating curtains of dust visible only when the sun peeks inside.
                                               go up the stairs.
                          I walk inside,
           morning,
Every
I inhabit a decommissioned building.
I saunter through the city as I wander through books. It all unfolds, creating an architecture of fragments that scaffolds images of consumption, of dwelling.
The book,
                  the architecture
                                             of the endless space
                                                                                where language and image collide.
— Rafael Domenech

About Episode 13

—–
In Re-model: la ciudad más allá de la ciudad, the thirteenth episode of StorefrontTV Season 3, Rafael Domenech examines the relationship between city and building, exploring how we dwell in different spaces and inhabit multiple realities. In a decommissioned high school building in Yonkers that he has occupied for the last few years, Domenech conducts a daily routine of 5 minute repairs, replacing vandalized windows, installing lighting systems, and repurposing unused faucets and toilets. Re-model juxtaposes footage from these tasks with the artist’s publications, proposing maintenance as a form of irreverence in a society of replacement.

About Episode 12
In Unmet Needs, the twelfth episode of StorefrontTV Season 3, Melanie Gilligan addresses the context of commodified and informal care for aging people in Ontario, Canada. Through conversations with a researcher and a care worker, she considers multiple types of caregiving relationships, investigating manifestations of intimacy, value of labor, agency, and access. Unmet Needs is a timely portrayal of the crucial relationships that maintain the physical and emotional health of one of society’s most vulnerable demographic groups.
