I love Philly’s Chinatown - it’s striking, it has presence, it declares itself, it won’t be rushed or ignored or dismissed in a glance. It is a gnarly beast and if you don’t treat it right it will push you off the curb into oncoming traffic. It is a complete example of poor city planning, its composition is democratic, its buildings are squalid, its population transient and shifting, It is legitimately abstract – changing shape and mood and evolving in color, form and texture as creative entities– the human roughness, blunt and broken edges of lives in transition and compression zones like blocks of ice crashing and grinding against each other – there is so much going on here –too many secrets to be seen or understood at once. That is why I love abstract – there’s always more, there’s never less.

Alexander Kolesnik Penetrating to the tips of neurons. In early spring, the transformation of consciousness. Suddenly remembered Mr. Polanski's Chinatown. Or rather the scene with a joke (puritans and hypocrites can stop reading here): the Guy tired of fucking his wife. And his buddy and says, "do as the Chinese!" "How do they do it?" "First a little fuck and then I read Confucius. Then again, a little fucking, and then out to admire the moon or anything else to get excited". Guy comes home, attached to his wife, Fucks her a little, and then reads the "life" magazine. Then again, fucking her, stops and says: "Sorry, honey, I'll be right back". Goes out and smokes a cigarette. His wife, slightly faded. And when he, a little have sex for again going to go out and look at the moon, his wife and asks, "What's wrong with you?! You fuck like a Chinaman!"

Oleg Ferstein This Is another masterpiece of you, Jared! When I saw it first time, I got really terrified, overwhelmed... I have to confess, it was difficult just to hit the buttons (admirable, Fav, any...) I'm really convinced, that one has to spend hours, days, months to be able to embrace the whole impact. I'm asking myself: have I ever been there at Chinatown - Shazam Street? I can say - Yes I have! And seems like not once!
