Michael Mahne Lamb – Complements
In Michael Mahne Lamb's Complements, a drowsy flight cabin hums as an umbrella gives cover to scrub, and glowing plastic furniture floats in darkness. Recall the experience of watching a train pass through a short tunnel – familiar and visually interrupted, yet psychologically completed. In translating this perceptual effect into a still image, the interpretive possibilities open up a library of visual concepts for past experiences: the back of an anonymous head calls for an old friend's face, just as sealed train doors call for a routine destination.
