A sculptor and photographer, Orozco works in a style that is elegant, minimal, and antimonumental. Although his sculptures are often ephemeral-in this case, he has turned an old sofa on its side, arranging its foam innards in a pattern on the ground-his photographs give these constructed situations a longer life. His odd interventions encourage an awareness of the poetic richness latent in ordinary things, as well as of the temporal fragility of our accomplishments.
