Andrew Bordwin for CityWay and Buckingham Properties
This spring Andrew Bordwin was commissioned by Buckingham Properties in Indianapolis, Gensler Architects and Dolce Hotels to photograph the newly-opened Hotel Alexander, part of the CityWay development in Indianapolis. In addition to photographing the entire property, Dolce hired Bordwin to create a series of photographs to be installed in 40 rooms throughout the hotel. This series, entitled "A Fractured Tour Guide," shows isolated abstractions of text and signage photographed throughout the Indianapolis metropolitan area. Dolce also acquired work by Type A, Bordwin's collaborative art project with Adam Ames. The work, part of a project called "Mark," consists of a single-channel video piece and a photography triptych, both of which are currently installed in the hotel.
