Artificial worlds: Eerie images capture recreational places at the dead of night...--Harriet Verney "CNN "
[S]ites that are joyous frenzies by day become uncanny in the darkness. A frontier schooner looks to be levitating from its ferris wheel, while the head of King Kong trapped in a lonely cage at the center of some whirling ride is more melancholy than menacing in the low light. In each scene, the emptiness and seemingly limitless black background heighten the surreal settings.--Allison Meier "Hyperallergic "
