The Shadow

Inside, two video screens mounted on easels faced each other from opposite ends of the room. According to the audio tour, Hito Steyerl's installation, 'The City of Broken Windows', took its inspiration from the window I had been looking through. One of the screens showed a workman battering a pane with a hammer. Muted chimes accompanied the crash. Standing in the same place, Steyerl hadn't seen what I had. Instead of taking in the architecture of the tree blossoms, or the gray light on a foggy morning, she decided to destroy the scene.

Written Word

It's not a bird. It's not a plane. And it's definitely not Superman. But on the right side of Enrique Chagoya's canvas, you can make out part of the Man of Steel's familiar logo. SUPER is spelled out in the familiar block lettering but the word is reversed (REPUS) and falling off the chest of a Frankenstein-like figure.

Big Data

Orbs drift and collide with lines. Some of them open up, dissolve or overlap with grids. Color mutates like lava fields on distant planets. These paintings retain an abstract narrative but they also nod to architectural forms and organic shapes. They could be hieroglyphics sent directly to Rapoport's mind from a more advanced region of the universe.
