Suburban Export uses household cardboard to create small houses arranged into a walkable labyrinth of neighborhoods based on suburban development patterns. The series' name resulted from the realization that trash is the main commodity that comes out of the residential zones of our cities.

Suburban Export was first installed October 2, 2011 at Freshkills Park in Staten Island, NY as part of its "Sneak Peak" event for the community. For over 50 years, Freshkills served as the landfill for all of New York City and is now in the process of being reclaimed into a 2200-acre, public park.

Suburban Export is made possible in part by a 2011 Original Work Grant from the Council on the Arts & Humanities for Staten Island, with public funding from the New York State Council on the Arts.
