Mixed media: suspended New York bedrock cores, enlarged photographic contacts
The location of this installation was one block from East River between the Brooklyn and Manhattan. The installation could be viewed only from outside through windows. the piece consisted of the Island of Manhattan's bedrock drilled out from piers. The low parts of the monumental concrete columns emerging from below refer to the fact that this is one of the first buildings in New York built from concrete. The enlarged photographic images of the artist's body suspended in space refer to the discomfort of resettlement in a different culture.
