between looking right (when remembering) and looking left (when creating)
Interdisciplinary installation created for the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, New York  2001-02

A response to the experience of being in my studio on the 92nd floor of Tower One of the World Trade Center. [As part of a LMCC artist residency from May, 2001 to September 11, 2001.] Using glass the same size of the windows of the WTC, video is projected onto these ‘windows’. The video was shot in September, 2001 and included different perspectives seen from those windows. The work is an elegant reference to the memory of the experience of looking out the windows from the World Trade Center–a view that has now vanished. The low-tech aesthetic of the video projections refers to the process of memory: as these images look ‘faded’ from the original, the way that memory fades our perception of the original through time. The use of glass also incorporates the viewer into the work, as they are reflected within it. as well as into a mediation of the past juxtaposed with the present. The installation also included a photo triptych.
