Urban Cataloguing (2003), a limited-edition artist's book, is an encyclopedic collection of images and text that investigate the patterns of city life and the collage of the urban experience. The artwork, which is produced in a limited edition of five, comprises three volumes Downtown, Midtown and Uptown each featuring photographs, collected by Weiss over a period of six months, of the details of the architecture and landscape of New York City that often escape notice.By highlighting the banal and often overlooked visual moments of city life, the brick pattern of a building's facade, the design of an ornamental iron gate, the steel and glass grid of a Skyscraper, Urban Cataloguing explores the perceptual, emotional, and psychological effect of these journeys, and the accumulation of visual information that accompany them. The images are complemented by texts, drawn from various sources, which explore related themes, such as the relationship of the individual to the city grid and the role of architecture in the shaping of the urban experience. Also included are silkscreen prints on paper and inkjet prints on acetate that further replicate the layering of textures that form the urban patchwork. The book format is ideal for the assembly of this imagery as it allows the viewer to experience the patterns at his or her own pace, selecting the moments and images to take particular note of, in the same way that one experiences walking through the city. The project was a collaboration with artists, Sarah Thompson, who bound the book and printed the silk screens and the design for the book was by Jason Seavers.
