Peter Cunningham, a noted photographer of entertainers (a list of his subjects runs from Bruce Springsteen to Les Misérables), has developed a personal medium that he calls "still film," in which a series of images are projected onto three screens, accompanied by an original score. These visual poems are decidedly more ambitious than his celebrity work; in the past they've consisted of essays on nature and consumerism. He shot his latest still film in Berlin, and it addresses, in a stunningly colorful fashion, how the walls that hem us in are not necessarily made of concrete.
