“Secret Subways”: video, paintings and photographs
An abstract meditation on the New York City subway system. The rich foment of the subway system is where we all come together in a shared state of blandly neutralized public experience. Teeming humanity has funneled in and out of the New York City transit tunnels for nearly a century, while the more antique nooks and crannies of the system have developed a particularly rich and interesting patina as a result. By focusing on the detritus, spaces, and structures as they slowly corrode back into their original elements, a compelling and animistic story of contemporary urban life can be told.
