Biographical Information
  • "This urban nightscape is one from a body of works that address, in a very direct way, some of the fabric of the urban experience: people knowing people, a sense of community; not knowing, a displacement of community; wanting to know; being seen; anonymity-not being seen; safety; danger; patterns and rhythms of all that movement-people walking, cars rolling, lights changing; that feeling of being in a moving vehicle and watching the world go by, perhaps asking ourselves if we are participants, creators, audience or passers-by?" O'Reilly, 1991
