I AM A DISASTER, 2006


Look in the mirror and see an impossible disaster – a peacefully overgrown ruin of a contemporary skyscraper superimposed in light over the viewer’s face. Each mirror is composed of four plexi-glas mirrors hand-engraved and rear-illuminated to form a glowing line drawing of a recently constructed skyscraper that has been improbably reduced to the kind of aestheticized ruin beloved of 18th and 19th century landscape painters.


Installation view at Galerie Gebruder Lehman, Dresden, Germany. Hand-engraved plexi-glas mirrors , plexi-glas frames, fluorescent lights.
