The Windows of 97 Orchard Street:
"Breach" an art installation by Michael Rakowitz
The latest installment of the "Windows of 97 Orchard" series is "Breach", a mixed-media exploration of the physical and mental isolation of working in a garment factory. Indeed, the garment factory often functions as an impenetrable fortress, obstructing views in or our through the exlusion of windows. The fortress breached through louvered inudstiral fans that provide brief glimpses into the workers' worlds. In repsonse to the presence of pedestrians or viewers, the fans in the installation turn off and on, blowing the louvers open to reveal back-lit photographs of actual sweatship interiors and the concealed workers.
