Artist Mary Lum strolls around the city photographing the urban environment—buildings, railings, stairwells, and other architectural details. She then deconstructs these photos and collages them with acrylic paint, creating dynamic, unique spaces for viewers to occupy and explore. At the deCordova Biennial, Lum’s images left me feeling both exhilarated and disoriented, as though I were in a dream where the environment was familiar, yet not quite right. What is fact and what is fiction?

Sharon Elphick- artist, her inspiration is from cities that she had lived in. I like this piece because of how she layed out the images and made them connect to one another giving a sort of disorder looking effect.
