In these large photographic prints, the entire Chicago Loop was reconstructed and virtually photographed from typical tourist vantage-points. The buildings, however, are made semi-transparent, allowing a renewed, abstracted look at the urban canyons.
Tech notes on the amalgamation body of work:
Later amalgamation work (Decades, Late Night, Special Moments) was done in C/C++ on Windows boxes with the ImageMagick C++ libraries. I did The Song of the Century manually with PC audio software (I honestly cannot remember what software, but I did download a few of the cover songs with the original Napster)
For the City and Loop pieces, we actually modelled much of Chicago's Loop as semi-transparent, textured rectangles and rendered this "city" from typical tourist vantage points. All of this was done in Maya. The Portrait pieces were done with Processing.
