"With my work, it’s the architecture and the space and the built environment that become a kind of palimpsest, another type of atmosphere. The buildings are so layered, the information can be so layered and disintegrated, that it almost becomes a dust-like atmosphere in the place and palimpsest."

-Julie Mehretu
