Above the Fold is a trans-media project where front-page sections of The New York Times from the beginning of the Kosovo War in 1999 to the present are categorized by the content of the photograph above the fold, creating a concrete manifestation of contemporary trends/biases of American media and culture.

When I stand in a derelict building I see the reality of its current state – empty, ghostly, forgotten, and I feel the energy and power that remain from its long arc through time: the endless twists and turns of its life. I see the initial excitement and vision of its beginning. I see its time of productivity: fulfilling its purpose and overflowing with the energy of people who spent their hours, months and years there. I feel their waves of emotions: joy and sadness, triumphs and failures, almost as if they were my own memories.
