Tenement Rising (back view)
mixed media sculptural installation with video
325 x 240 x 135 cm
Tenement Rising looks at the issue of overpopulation and overcrowding in cities throughout the world. Amid millions of people, how do ideas of anonymity and individualism play out? This work also looks addresses the feeling of loneliness that one can have, while surrounded by many people.
Work lights positioned behind Tenement Rising illuminate the windows. Videos play intermittently throughout the piece behind other windows, showing a slice of life from many different cultures.
