Description: Storefront windows are first covered with a photograph of the reflection, including the photographer’s gaze. As the colored prints fall off, the gap is filled in with a contour drawing of the reflection. When the contour drawing falls off, then the reflective glass shows through. The installation is a collage of light, photography, and drawing. The project was curated by Windows on Main Street, a public art exhibition in Beacon, New York.
