BORN ON A TRAIN, 2004- 2005

 

MAIN

This work was created for a solo exhibition at the Society for Contemporary Photography and consisted of various projects exploring  the spatial and temporal aspects of train travel.  Additional images from each body of work available upon request.

   
     

SLEEPER CAR INSTALLATIONS

   
 

These images are from a project in which I created a daily installation in the sleeper car of a cross country train. Passengers on the train were encouraged to come and visit the sleeper car on a daily basis to see the transformed spaces.

SUNRISE, SUNSET

 

This piece consists of a model train that weaves on a track through various found thrift store paintings. The eight paintings gradually change from Sunrise to Sundet. The piece considers the role of the railroad and commissioned 19th Century landscape painters in the development and settlement of the West

 
   
     

ALONG THE TRACKS

   
 

This series of photographs were taken along train tracks in different parts of the country. Given the physical connectedness of railroad tracks, the photographs form a continuous narrative of sorts.

STILL

   
  These images are from a  project exploring depecitions of trains in silent film. Trains and film both have the ability to transport one- either physically or metaphorically. The photographs were video stills shot off of a television screen and are based on silent films such as The Great Train Robbery.
