Eve Luckring — It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

A series of letters recreates communication with the City of Los Angeles about speculative development projects in the artist’s neighborhood. The dense and impersonal language of notification documents, appeal forms, and bureaucratic correspondence inspired her to respond in the reflective tone and imagistic language characteristic of contemporary tanka, a form of Japanese lyric poetry.
