Levi Wedel : Photography

Invisible City

Storefronts at night have an unnerving quality. The lights and displays used in these unoccupied stores simulate an appearance of presence which signifies that each is open for business, and it is ironically this thinly-veiled simulation which indicates that these spaces are in fact deserted. The bright spectacles in each store window promise goods and services which lay behind solid glass and locked doors making them unavailable at night. These spectacles initiate desires that cannot be quenched and solicit consumers that are not present, generating a simulacrum in a play of signs that only point to each other. Photographs of these spaces are similarly a play of signs and desires with their voyeuristic promise to disclose the private internal contents of each store. Despite that these contents remain partially concealed by the limited view through doors and windows. [extract : levi wedel website]
