There's an absolute magic to the patterns of lights lining the streets and emanating from fifty-story buildings.
With this work, I wanted to bottle that magic for each of five great American cities. I wanted to place the city's man-made, organic patterns against the patterns of the universe, and maybe make the viewer reflect on their place in it all.
