"In From Darkness to Daylight (2004), Ricardo Miranda Zuniga constructs an installation at 1 Freeman Alley (off of Rivington Street between Bowery and Chrystie Streets), reflecting on the history and the future of the Bowery. The sculptural work is made of a series of large ducts, similar to those found in the alley itself, that have been interwoven together and inserted with monitors featuring computer animated characters that reflect different histories of the Bowery. Each animation is based upon a real resident of the Bowery and features recorded interviews by each with the artist."
Curator, Melanie Franklin Cohn
