TIME & AGAIN® Grand Rapids

Bolt & Gunnink

"TIME&AGAIN® Grand Rapids" will take Artprize viewers on a walk through time. Historic photos of Grand Rapids are re-photographed as they appear today. Printed on sheer fabric, the old photo hangs directly in front of the present day image on cotton canvas and offer viewers the allusion of looking through the past into the present. They see the same scene, at the same time, from two different time periods. The three 5ft x 3ft pieces surround the fountain of the historic Pantlind Lobby and each scene has a connection to the Hotel.
