This installation is composed of a group of gelatin silver prints that are hung on the wall with sixty-four light bulbs strung throughout, a web of hanging electric cables connecting them.  In the center hang three larger photos of young people's faces. Above each and below the center image are smaller versions of similar portrait photographs. Four of these smaller photos are also arranged in the line of the large photographs, one on each end, and two separating the larger pictures.

This small watercolor shows the view of an arch by a city waterfront. A wall closes off the left side of the street leading up to the arch, and creates a powerful sense of recession into space leading from the foreground to the monument in the middle distance. Scattered figures inhabit the street. Beyond the arch may be glimpsed the waters of a bay and a hill rising above the far shore.

This colorful print has a series of scenes in four quadrants with a yellow-orange frame. All of the images are blurred, likely because the color plates did not line up with the registration for this proof. In the top left, there is a image of soldiers leaning over next to a small statue made from the photograph "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima." In the lower left, there is an image of a woman, smiling and holding flowers. In the top right, there are three images (top to bottom): circuit board, doubled image of the Mr. Peanut cartoon, and a partial American flag. In the lower right, there are two blurry images: the top image is abstracted and the bottom image shows two scientists working on what appears to be a space craft.
