Lego Nighthawks

To mark the Art Institute of Chicago Edward Hopper exhibition.
Up through May 10.

Taking off from the previous post: the large pane of glass of the cafe reinforces the modernity of the scene, as well as the isolation of the people and their vulnerability. In an older building with more “wall” and less glass, especially in an urban ground floor setting, at night- they’d seem more protected. And looking through this framed glass makes it seem that something is about to happen. Without the large glass we’d feel less voyeuristic, and less excited.

Remember the Lego Farnsworth House?
