    About The Work

    CHCE0101 is from Matthew Brandt's series Two Ships Passing, a collection of images from China and the United States. In this series Brandt explored the interdependent relationship between the two countries, using photos of urban Hunan, China and the American Lake in Tacoma, Washington to illustrate these connections.

    The works are actually electrified: an electric current runs from one single Edison light bulb through the copper plates in the image. Here electricity is used as a symbol of industrialization and the rise of America as a super power. In this way, the images from the American Lake in Tacoma—which are prints soaked in the lake water itself— are electrically connected to those of urban Hunan. CHECE0101 specifically shows a cityscape from China etched on copper picture plates included in the series.
