Between the buildings of a city, another city. It’s invisible, the city no one built. In this city, the buildings are made not of brick or steel, but of sky.

The spaces between buildings have been photographed and inverted to form a new urban iconography – buildings made of sky. The sequence charts the course of a day from dawn to dusk. Photographs by the artist from New York, Chicago and San Francisco. Book designed by the artist with his notes and a brief essay.
