  • An amazing miniature axonometric view of NYC - a section of Canal Street (not an exact replica but a personal perspective). Alan Wolfson creates intricate models of urban environments that capture a very definite atmosphere and mood.

    The New York Times Modern Love College Essay Contest

    "Three years ago we invited college students to tell us the truth about what love was like for them in this age of 24/7 communication, blurred gender roles and new attitudes about sex and dating. The response, from students at more than 365 colleges and universities nationwide, was overwhelming and eye opening.

    So we’re asking again. If you have a personal story that illustrates the current state of love and relationships, e-mail it to us at essaycontest@nytimes.com. The winning author will receive $1,000 and his or her essay will be published in a special “Modern Love” column on May 1, 2011, and on nytimes.com.”

    What Happens When is a playground for food. It is a temporary restaurant installation that transforms every 30 days for 9 months, offering guests an ever-changing culinary, visual and sound experience.

    This delicious exhibition is a result of the collaboration between one chef, two designers, a photographer and a composer.”

Not wanting to string LA along, he has decided to firmly break it off through a graphic billboard series posted on the famous streets of his first love.”
