This event has ended.
In 2015, Steven Seidenberg embarked on a photography-based exploration of the tape used in Tokyo subway stations to provide direction for passengers, mark borders, indicate areas of caution, and instruct construction crews. Seidenberg’s photographs bring forward the idiosyncracies and creativity employed in the application of these elements, using the limits of each photograph to compose a painterly rendering of geographic minimalism, a previously undocumented landscape at the base of the visual field. This landscape functions like all others, decaying, fading, drifting from form to form beneath and beyond the constraints of original intent and purposeful design. The exhibiton consists of 102cm x 154cm color prints, allowing the artist to both document a world that is actively disappearing at unprecedented scale and construct an uncanny aesthetic perspective from these otherwise quotidian elements of the built environment.
