The exhibition will be laid out in lines. The exhibition will be hung in sequences breaking chronology. The exhibition will be formal, but not just shapes. Photography and sculptures are not the same thing, but they are companions. Some choose more, some choose less, everyone has to have at least two, and the boundaries are derailed.

Motive power, pull weight, when will this train ever end, the passengers, the underground, blocking the varnish, night train express, spatially separated images and objects occur at the same time becoming linked by the observer, train and platform experiments, when & where events occur when you were not present, the locomotive, the chain, the caboose, the trolley problem, the o train, the reaper rips over the tracks and now everything is covered in piss.
