View From a Plane / The View From Afar
2000, C prints, dimensions variable.

The work shows three distinct images: the frozen landscape around Toronto airport with its gasoline tanks; a view from my hotel window in Bogota and the figure of a dead Nukak child, a victim of the epidemics brought by landless peasants colonizing Nukak lands. This work epitomizes the various realities of this world and the effects of globalization and its absurdities. The work is shown in 6 Plexiglas frames mounted two inches off the wall and lighted in such a way that the shadows of the frames are reflected on the wall giving the impression of an aerial light sculpture.
