Daniel Gordon’s The Green Line
“Gordon’s Brooklyn workspace is reached by going up five flights of stairs through the dark, cat-laden apartment of a neighbor and up a narrow spiral staircase. In a style usually reserved for the homes of serial killers or very experimental taxidermists, his floor is littered with bits of people’s flesh—arms and eyelashes and stringy mats of hair mingle with lemon rinds and lobster claws. The body parts are so abundant you can’t help but step on them.”
