Jean Barberis, a native of France, came to New York in 2000 to learn a few things and has never left. He is a well-travelled young man and a jack of all trades. Barberis is co-founder of Flux Factory's gallery space and arts collective.
Matt is a pedestrian. He’s walked across the USA, from New York to Oregon, and is now walking every block of all five boroughs of NYC.
Long story short, he walks around and looks at stuff. Most of the world is invisible, even when you think you’re looking right at it. Matt tries to get better at looking. Some guy once called him an artist of paying attention.
