Paul Pfeiffer, Fragment of a Crucifixion (after Francis Bacon), 1999

Images of Paul Pfeiffer, Fragment of a Crucifixion (after Francis Bacon)

  • A palm-sized digital projector is mounted a few inches away from a white wall. It projects a small image of a uniformed athlete standing in a crowded arena.
  • A dark-skinned basketball player stands on the basketball court wearing a white uniform, mouth open as if he is shouting. Behind him, fans fill the seats in a darkened stadium. Two bright camera flashes emanate from the darkened crowd.
