This is the piece that I have in the show 'Local Transit'. It is at Artists Space through June 24th.

The entire surface of the boat is carved with images of the skyline seen from the East River. Before I constructed the boat, I printed the planks with a steam roller. See pictures of the process.

Here is the Manhattan side.

I named the piece 'I Am Half Sick of Shadows' after a line from the Alfred Lord Tennyson poem, The Lady of Shallot. That is what she says before she carves her name on her boat and floats down-river to her death. My uncle Charley Hoenig once explained to me that Tennyson's audience would have understood her curse to be that of the artist - resigned to see life only through a reflection.
