Michael Wolf; Transparent City #39; 2007/2008 | Chromogenic print | 40 x 52 in.

"The Transparent City" surveys the density and magnitude of Chicago's skyline. (Michael) Wolf's large scale prints reveal the enormity of its skyscrapers; at the same time they enable us to observe intimate and private goings on within individual apartments and offices. By cropping out traces of street and sky Wolf constructs an abstracted and endless world of windows, lights and reflections.

Enjoy seeing in these windows as much as we do:
