Placing the labels on the East wall, which featured the linear cartographic progression known as the Lenz Project(ion).
Starting at the North end of the wall at June 25, 2004, this linear cartographic progression moves South to October 19th, 2004 and features all the maps that comprise this 3 month body of work. The wall ends at print out of DC Lenz #2, which was framed and hanging on the South fence of the playground adjacent to the final print of the series (below).

Chuck Baxter took these photographs from around 8:30 to 8:45pm

The South fence contained (left to right):
DC Lenz #2, Georgetown Lenz #2, and Star of DC.


Since the playground is not technically public property (it is owned and maintained by the Westminster Neighborhood Association) we had a few beers as the excursion ended. Some people inquired about having wine and my response was “This is a playground, who drinks wine in a playground?”

A big thank you to all those intrepid souls who came to North, South, East, Westminster! Stay tuned for the next excursion! Expect more maps…

An extra special thank you to Ted Stein and Chuck Baxter for allowing me to use their pictures. If you were at North, South, East, Westminster and have pictures you’d like to share, please contact me!

  1. This is the culmination of all your experiments from the time I was living on Westminster Street. Very cool that you had the exhibit at the Westminster playground!

  2. This show was fabulous – you could/should have taken donations to support your work, like any struggling young artist! I stopped by late, with members of the “Rumsfeld 4” – currently on trial for demonstrations outside Rumsfeld’s home. All were glad we had made it to the show before it closed. The creativity and blending of “real” urban spaces with an artistic vision is amazing. Kudos to Nik – next time consider using an indoor space, which would allow for different lighting – but this setting was great too.

  4. What a community happening! Nik, I only wish I could have been there! From the photos it seems that you used the space for the show really well–your work frames really beautifully. Good luck and on to the next!

  5. Nik! I was so excited about this project when we walked around your neighborhood that day and I’m really glad that it worked out for you. I sent the email you sent me far and wide but I don’t know if I succeeded in finding people to go to your exhibit. I love your art and I am psyched for you. Congratulations.
