1. Tell Us About the theme, “The Passage of Time”
I used an elevator as a symbol for a transitions. The elevators are stuck between the 24th & 25th floors, which represents the December 24th and Christmas Day.
In both windows I wanted to illustrate the two different worlds, upstairs and downstairs and how they interchange when you adjust your focus. Outside of the elevators shows a festive atmosphere, however inside the elevators the scenes are quite intense.
The right window shows an elevator that’s passing the 24th floor, to represent Hanukkah this year. There is a fiddler on the roof, some empty Chinese food containers and a little guy reading some fortune cookies. In New York it’s very common for the Jewish population to eat Chinese take out on Christmas Day since most restaurants are closed on the holiday.
Pnina Tornai’s dresses are featured in the windows and Jimmy Choo shoes — they all represent opulence and glitz. The men are wearing tuxedos designed by Frank Jedda.
