Recent Projects | Three Cities


In the spring of 2002, eight months after the attacks of 9/11, I was invited to participate in “New Views, World Financial Center” a residency program organized by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the World Financial Center Art & Events.

In residency, I made a layered video of the viewing platform overlooking the ruins of the World Trade Center. Instead of focusing on the pit, I filmed the flow of thousands of people entering and leaving the platform. I was interested in portraying this collective gesture of mourning, given form and direction by the architecture of the viewing platform.  I then submerged my camera into the Hudson River at the site of the World Trade Center.  The skyline is reflected in the waves, falling apart and reconstituting with them.  These two videos document New York City after the disaster and record the inevitable transformation following it.
