San Jose and 24th is permanently installed at the Facebook, Inc. offices in Sunnyvale, California. This work is part of a recent series of works that draw from local architecture in the Mission District in San Francisco, California. The Mission has undergone many transformations throughout its history. Most recently, it has experienced an influx of wealthy tech workers that have helped to drive housing prices up. By some measures, San Francisco is now the most expensive city in the world. The increase in housing prices has pushed out working class residents and led to a housing crisis and ballooning of the Bay Area homeless population. As the neighborhood changes and buildings get renovated or torn down and replaced by huge condominiums, this work aims to preserve my memories of that area. This work feels very personal as I recently moved away from San Francisco.
