"Construction Site Privacy Screen, Left to Our Imagination"
The work pit of a giant residential building site was surrounded by street-side privacy screening whose double layers of black fabric created wild moire patterns intended to prevent viewers from making any sense of the industrial havoc beyond. Approaching the privacy screens with my camera, I was shooed away by suspicious construction people; but not before I had a chance to photograph the black-out screens, which I then subjected to an imaginary exercise in what tempting shapes and non-industrial colours might exist behind it. If the construction company were standing next to this picture, it would, no doubt, be advising you, in a tone both earnest and vaguely alarmed, that its work pit looks nothing at all like what has been suggested here.
