DIBS was shot during a 20-minute walk around my block.  In Chicago, the practice of "dibs" is common and controversial.  Since so many city dwellers park on the street, after a large snow storm people dig out a parking place and claim it with various household objects.  Some disapprove of this practice while others embrace it.  I've lived in neighborhoods where it was uncommon, but currently, I live in a neighborhood where it is widely embraced and objects remain in the street long after the melt.

I'm fascinated by the choices people make about what objects to use and also the quiet beauty these objects have in their new life as sculptural objects on the street.
