The film City Slivers is a formal study of urban architecture and street life in New York. The film was scheduled to be projected onto the façade of a building and was shown for the first time at the ARCADES outdoor exhibition and later on in the Holly Solomon Gallery. The play of buildings and the empty spaces between them created geometrical shapes. These recorded shapes are doubled by vertically covering a part of what has been filmed with a ribbon. A void that once again divides the photographic images of the architecture.
