CITY ILLUSION

Home / CITY ILLUSION

I travel frequently and extensively. I called each of the cities in City Illusion ‘home’ for more than a month. I became well acquainted with the concrete and human presences of these cities. I experienced the material personalities of these cities and the liminal, dream-like shadows behind the cities. The impressions these cities left on me were, at the same time, strong and ephemeral. Just when I would think I had grasped the who or what of a city, I would see it in a different light, both literally and figuratively, and that new perspective made it readily apparent that whoever or whatever I thought the city was, was merely an illusion.

It is my hope that City Illusion gives the viewer an experience similar to my own: just as soon as you think you’ve grasped an impression, you see something else which changes your perspective and loosens your grip on one impression, giving way to another and another and another, until you feel the weight of impressions, none of which are truly substantial yet all of which are real in their own right and their own way.
