16 Square Blocks is an interactive web documentary exploring Seattle's Chinatown through a series of documentary shorts and innovative multimedia. In June, 2010, a vacant storefront in Seattle's International District was converted into an immersive exhibition space that showcased the printed photography, short films, and a portrait grid. 

This project was generously funded by 4Culture and the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, and supported in part by the Seattle Chinatown International District Preservation and Development Authority.
