BUZZ SPECTOR spent two childhood summers living within miles of the station site but primarily grew up in Chicago. Until recently, he lived in the Mt. Washington area and had a studio in South Central Los Angeles; he now lives in Ithaca, New York where he teaches at Cornell University. Spector’s work uses the book as subject and object of inquiry into the relationship between history and memory, and uses the library as a metaphor for both. This is Spector’s first completed public commission.
