Tannen, a local artist, quotes the writer Raymond Chandler in his wall statement for the show, and the influence of old detective novels and films can be felt throughout. In the re-created hotel room, a picture hanging askew affords a look through a peephole in the wall, where Tannen projects slides of an empty street at night, an abandoned lobby, a table full of letters and photographs.
