“Liminal Infrastructure” presents newly commissioned photographs made in and around Chicago by the Optics Division of the Metabolic Studio. Working with the Liminal Camera, a massive, portable camera obscura fashioned from a shipping container, the Optics Division uses experimental technology in an ongoing effort to map and depict the American landscape. These large-scale prints not only highlight the evolving history of photographic imaging, but also locate the city of Chicago within a complex global network of transportation systems, industry, and commerce.
