The last time I was in the Met I spend time in the period rooms. I used to find a lot of Romance in period rooms – an interior experience in more than one way. I still do, but in a different way. Environments become more significant the more I work with the Anonymous Woman. She’s no more than décor, something to look at, something to occupy, like the pretty cage she’s in. As I placed her in this British room, she also looks like she’s rising from a billboard, bridging 18th c. beauty into the late 20th.
