Subject matter
In this black-and-white photograph, a portable screen on a tripod stands in the center of an interior living space, while a miniature puppet theater on a tripod stands to the right. Projected on the portable screen is a cropped image of an airplane engine. The legs and skirt of a woman standing behind the screen are visible emerging from the darkness of the unlit space in the background. Compositionally, the image stages a series of nested frames: the proscenium arch dividing the space of the room is echoed in the arch of the miniature theater set, the cropping of the projected image on the screen, and the slight protrusion of what appears to be the photographer's finger on the top left corner.

Physical Description
Photograph of a portable tripod screen with projection of airplane in an interior living space.
