|7 Illinois Street|
Seven animated industrial nightscapes are extended and
reconstructed into a post-urban dreamland. Most of the imagery was photographed
from the front window of my Illinois Street studio. The remaining sequences
were taken within a few blocks, along a short stretch of this semi-abandon,
waterfront street. These extra-panoramic portraits are filled with a serene
sense of wonder and mystery. Devoid of people, the urban features - flickering
lights, impossible buildings, silent cranes - assume a life of their own.
The soundtrack, composed from altered recordings of the same locations,
is similarly surreal and distanced.
