A video about Lower Merion

Five Mile Radius from Jules C on Vimeo.

I did this one last spring. The theme is similar to that of my collage, that of the contrasts inherent in my neighborhood.

Another Piece about a Place

Cape from Jules C on Vimeo.

This is a movie I did for another class. About six years ago, I taught at a high school in Harwich on Cape Cod. It was an unforgettable experience and I feel honored to have known the students I did, to have been some part of their lives.

Wish You Were Here

Title of your piece: Bordertown
Medium: Collage
Location: Lower Merion and Philadelphia

Do I wish you were here?
Do you?
If you live on the west side of City Line Avenue, the answer is a resounding "yes." Sprawling mansions rest comfortably amidst lawns of a surreal green. The boutiques in the carefully maintained little towns sell watches that cost more than many cars, the quaint storefronts have an array of designer fashions. The only faces that are dark skinned are the nannies pushing their towheaded charges, or the men wielding the leaf blowers. They stop when you pass on the sidewalk.

Wish you were here?

Walk a block east, though, and everything is different.
