Window Crossing, 2014

Joyce Yu-Jean Lee

Does this image depict indoors or outdoors? The grass looks real, as does the strong sunlight coming from above, yet the glass and steel window frames evoke an indoor office setting. The artist often constructs passageways into elusive and sometimes imaginary spaces. The artist captured this image of an industrial urban landscape at the Museum Folkwang in Germany. The thoughtful composition highlights basic architectural elements and geometric light forms. In this way, the photograph creates new meaning from an otherwise familiar scene, reflecting the artist’s interest in exploring how the act of seeing is transformed by technology.
