Where We Left Off at the Reception

It was at the reception for the window installation at ATA, this was the seventh anniversary of my sister Yolanda's death. She died on September 11*, 2008 from ovarian cancer. This is a picture of her very close friend Elizabeth,in a photo booth I had made. It was a film noir setup with window blinds. It had nothing to do with the window installation, except that it involved light and a boundary - a leaving off, as it were. That's what a window is, what Shadow is: a leaving off, transparent or insolid in some way. Visitors to the reception were invited to pose in the booth, and I would direct them in acting out poses. In this photograph, my prompt was that Elizabeth was looking out the window and seeing Yolanda.
