Parting Shots-- a 3 channel video installation

tough to explain this on a blog-- but here goes: it's three screens... screens 1 and 3 are urban sketches-- vehicle shadows creep along industrial buildings in the early morning in Sunset Park Brooklyn. The sound is synched up with each passing shadow, rendering an unsettling and aggressively discordant world. The MIDDLE image (on a small monitor in the center of the room) is of mannequins I painted and still photographed in other neighborhoods in NYC. The walls yield a horizontal movement, the small monitor forward motion... drifting through urban space.
