PRESS

“It was this juxtaposition of human fragility and the unyielding metal framework-the pliant, fragile human creature, pitted against the unforgiving and unfeeling construct and not only surviving but transcending, a visible metaphor for the perils and potentials of contemporary urban life-that left the most poignant and most optimistic impression”

– Max Wyman, The Weekend Sun
