The images in "Interstices" capture impressions of the city at night. They focus on the blank spaces, the intervals, between buildings and branches, traffic signals and medians, flags and electrical cables.

In these photographs, things are on the verge of vanishing.

A looming skyscraper, a construction crane, a lit-up bus, a passerby caught in a crosswalk. The street becomes an arena of shifting views. The familiar shimmers, trembles, and becomes almost unrecognizable.

From below the sheen of the aluminum surface, the black pigment breaks and dissolves. The city at night becomes a mirror, a mirage.
