Chronicles of Como is a public art project completed in Fort Worth, TX that was conceptualized as a graphic, layered glass façade that changes based on your point of view. Some of my other photographic projects involve looking at and through translucent or transparent materials to find new images that naturally happen through the printed page. Working on this piece for and with the Como community, I wanted to provide a metaphor for the experience of being part of a community or being outside it; that the way you see your peers and relationships differs depending on where you are standing.
Two layers of graphic film combine to create a new image depending on the audience’s angle of view. From the street, a striking image of figures and buildings is first noticed, and as you look more closely the abstract verso layer comes into play and engages you to look closer. My hope is that this abstraction will draw the viewer to come inside.
