Two salvaged windows are filled with photographic transparencies and explore place, time, and experience.


Karen Kaighin, a photographer, identifies the specific locale of two third-floor windows, which look out over the neighborhood, at the time of the winter solstice. Two salvaged windows are hung there, filled with her photographic transparencies (rather after the manner of stained glass) and explore place (latitude and longitude), time, and experience.
