Inspired by the Relationship series, The Transfer takes you down beyond the stairs of A Flicker Of Hope and into the interior of a NYC subway station circa 1983 equipped with a token booth, turnstiles, i-beams and gates. The point of shifting from one place to another, both mentally and physically, allows the viewer to engage the piece, walk in and around it and finally go through it to see the entirety of the installation as a metaphor for what is typically dismissed as only a commuting hub.
