This 25 foot-long project was a commission for the main lobby of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago as part of the 2010 exhibition, Production Site: The Artist’s Studio Inside-Out.

The piece was installed with an initial narrative (which focuses on a semi-fictitious artist's studio building in an industrial pocket of Chicago). New developments to this story were added to the drawing once every two weeks over the course of the exhibition, and previously reported elements of the story were subject to change or disappear, as contradictory evidence and new observations were acquired.
