"$2500/sq.ft" is a social satire playfully dealing with the destabilization of affordable housing due to the effects of luxury high rise apartment developments. For numerous sectors of urban dwellers, housing has become excessively high priced. The interior of the cardboard boxes are photographed using a wide angle lens to capture the cheap, common, cardboard containers in order to mimic the architectural photography used in luxury real estate marketing. The titles are based on headline copy from real estate advertisements as seen in publications, e.g. The New York Times Sunday magazine.
