City View at Moving Image Gallery, 2000
installation with printed acetates

"City View" consists of 10 laser prints on acetate mounted in a black wooden frame and set into the gallery window (the rest of the windows are blacked out). Digitally collaged images represent different Manhattan apartment interiors, complete with their inhabitants and their accoutrements. If you look hard, you can make out the shapes of the real city through these images. "City View takes the light and images from the city and converts it into a glowing portrait of the city; it also provides the stained glass, cathedral-like atmosphere appropriate for accompanying "Drag" which sits on the floor directly in front of "City View".
