This series illustrates New York City skyscrapers in a new light, where their rationalistic and palatial structures, conceal the intimacy of our human desires. The symmetry, curvature, and detailed juxtapositions of glass, steel, and concrete mirror our humanistic efforts to create perfection, in both architecture and our own personal desires. The intention of the series is to trigger the viewers attention towards thoughts of where we are, who we are, and how our desires work to create and shape our environment and how our environments, conversely, shape us.
