What’s The Commodity? Addresses architectural ornament and the balance between historical preservation and gentrification. A vignette of terra cotta ornament and plastics searches for balance, while the titular line, "What's the Commodity?" is explored through the terra cotta shipping pallets. As a whole, the work questions how our neighborhoods are being marketed and how they can be responsibly gentrified.
