Christine Carr, 221.07.43 (2007), pigmented inkjet print, 22 x 27 inches.

Carr highlights the form and scale of these monumental buildings by use of composition and light in order to “imbue a sensibility rather than provide examples of individual use.” Monolith arouses an unsettling feeling about power, security, and perception.

Haley Morris-Cafiero, News Café (2015), archival inkjet print, 16 x 16 inches.

For Wait Watchers, Morris-Cafiero sets up a camera in a public area where she performs mundane tasks. She then photographs the scene including herself, passers-by, and their reactions. The resulting images capture the gazes of passers-by in a Cartier-Bresson-like “decisive moment.”

The artist describes her project as a social experiment on how we judge and look at one anther. With the camera the artist “reverses the gaze back onto the stranger and places the viewer in the position of a passive witness.”
