PROGRAM NOTES :
"A brief remembrance of the 1920s – an evocation of old visual experiments using negatives, multiple exposure, diagonal compositions, geometric abstraction. Electric wires and utility poles are perfectly harmonic artificial elements in the landscape, cutting right-angle shapes into the sky and illustrating the untiring habit to reduce the visible into mere structures drawn in black and white."
