if you get to the gallery too late in the day, like after 5 PM as I did, when it’s darker outside in the street / than it is in the gallery . . you can’t see Peter’s storefront window photograph !! so you kind of have to move the door a bit to change the exterior light / to catch a glimpse of it, which is pretty fascinating, in and of it’s own ‘technical’ narrative.
the shiny metallic vinyl ‘perforations’ become the ‘subject’. it’s just really strange to wonder about the static vs mutated photographic image, properties of light, a multitude of holes, and the . . whole.
it’s an image shifter, depending on the light. & we usually consider photographs so: indelible.
