Andy Warhol said that “Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”. I have been on the AIC wall for
If you saw the show and if you look closely at the Gil and Larsson photograph of my Marina Tower's Condo (and me) titled, The Reader, you could have seen some wind turbines, a PV cell, a hardhat for visiting wind and solar construction sites and my speaker's badge from WindPower 2007 where I presented my paper, The Current Technology and Economics of Storing Wind Electricity as Hydrogen, 3-6 June 2007, Los Angeles, CA.

The Gil and Larsson Exhibition, Inside Marina City, is a companion to the retrospective exhibition, Bertrand Goldberg: Architecture of Invention, 17 September 2011– 15 January 2012, AIC Galleries 283–285. Bertrand Goldberg was the architect of Marina City.

When you see, Transparent City # 6, 2007, at the MCA, the image is so sharp that you can see the patio furniture on my patio deck. I live in the tower to the right. Count down from the top of the right tower about 20 floors until you see my neighbor's 3 semicircle lines of light on their patio deck. My deck is to the left of my neighbor's deck. I am now off the wall of both the AIC and the Pinkcomma Gallery but now my patio furniture is now on the wall of the MCA. Look closely on the photo and you can see my white patio furniture on my deck. You can also see my neighbor's patio furniture. There is a lot to see at the MCA. My patio furniture is just for fun. Enjoy your visit.
