Jorge Otero-Pailos is a New York-based artist and preservationist best known for making monumental casts of historically charged buildings. His site-specific series, The Ethics of Dust, is an ongoing, decade-long investigation resulting from cleaning dust and the residue of pollution from monuments such as the Doge’s Palace in Venice; Westminster Hall in the Houses of Parliament, London; the U.S. Old Mint in San Francisco; and Trajan’s Column at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. He is Director and Professor of Historic Preservation at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture in New York.
