This exploration of contemporary architecture evolved from the 19th century spectacle of the arcade and artificial light. Nightwalking draws on low light portable image technology to investigate ritualized modes of commodity exchange and allusion. The isolation of the walker is reinforced by the carefully structured environments which promote the gaze and illuminate the promise of pleasure.
