Dock Street Flats

Dock Street Flats is a series of custom wall graphics that were commissioned for the upscale, urban apartment by the same name in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis. The challenge that was achieved in this series was to acknowledge the industrial past of the site, and infuse a modern sense of energy. Street perspectives of neighboring views from the 1890s to 1910 were found in the Library of Congress Archives. From images scanned off of the original glass plate negatives, I illustrated layers of color and movement to bring together the details of the past with the dancing, energetic pulse of the current time.
