hd animation of photography and paper cut-outs, 2008
sound design by Hillary Zipper

As a visiting artist in Rome I worked on a series of collages that were inspired by the history, beauty and energy in and around the city. Now that I have returned to Philadelphia, I am continuing to respond to the history of places. Window is the view from a gallery window, located in the industrial part of Chinatown in Philadelphia. Technically, I was inspired by traditional Chinese paper cutting and the soundtrack is composed of a combination of my field recordings of the area and old recordings of garment factories.
