Under the Marquee, 2005
20 x 40 inches
two 8 x 10 inch photographs
A pair of photographs shot under the marquee of the Los Angeles theater, site of the premiere of the first natural-color feature length film, Becky Sharp, from 1935. The right image was shot in black and white looking west at dusk and the left image was shot at dawn the following morning looking east.
The image pair pieces use the model of a stereo pair, showing the same subject twice, but instead of using the slightly different vantage points of two eyes to activate the quasi-physiological illusion of depth, these works introduce another kind of difference.
