The photographs of city lights were beautiful and simple on their own. However, the "connect the dots" aspect of the work made it seem immature. The result just looked like an extended glares from street lights. James' created the lines by drawing on a glass clamped to the camera lens. Interesting technique.
Even though the end results weren't moving, as a New Yorker, the purpose of this series of works is not lost on me.
