Stretched and Still Lies the Midnight

Stretched and Still Lies the Midnight is a site specific photo collage, created for the Opera Viva exhibition in Turin, Italy. The work responds to the flow of pedestrian and vehicular traffic at the exhibition site, a billboard on a city roundabout in Barriera di Milano, one of Turin's neighborhoods with the largest immigrant population. The title is borrowed from Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself, a haunting poem of war in which amputated bodies become an emblem of fragmentation and loss.
