“I put together what I thought of as a dream journey,” Abels explains. “The images start with nighttime evening colors and scenes in blues and slate grays, and that moves toward the transition of the show in the middle of the room, where it’s replaced with warmer, daylight imagery in yellows and warmer colors. It opens and closes with images of windows that bookend the show; in a certain way, it’s like the sun going down and coming up in your bedroom, and the images between represent the dream.”
