Shadow Town, 1992

Jason Tannen’s installation, Shadow Town, in an old church building downtown … establishes its emotional tenor through environmental means. In the most effective part of this work, Tannen has furnished a small room in the manner of a slightly seedy hotel room, complete with the soundtrack of telephones ringing endlessly, feet thumping up the stairs, as well as an occasional scream and siren.
