Road Portraits muses on the nature of travel as simultaneously public and private. Charles Borowicz is enamored with the way cars enclose their passengers in a private bubble, yet as we pass them on the road, we get momentary glimpses into that private space which is in reality very public. According to the artist, It’s a very real moment when we get to see unguarded individuals, performing as nobody except themselves. The video can be viewed several times each hour through June 30, on the screen above the main escalator/stair between Civic Plaza and Baggage Claim.
