Lucinda Weil Bunnen - ART PAPERS Vol. 10, No. 4 (1986); Edition of 50
Lucinda Bunnen created this silvery streetscape in 1974. It later appeared in ART PAPERS in 1986, in guest editor and noted architect Merill Elam's groundbreaking architecture and design issue—dubbed a "bagazine" because its texts and
images were presented, unbound, inside a printed glassine envelope. The image of a freeway is doubled and collaged, showcasing Bunnen's experimental approach to photography. This edition translates the reflective quality of the original work through lithography onto mica-coated, opalescent paper.
