MillenniumLine, 2012
photo installation, 3901 x 5 cm

Millennium Line is a 109 foot photo backlit photographic transparency, displaying hundreds of stitched-together video images taken from the window of a Skytrain as it shuttles between suburban stations from the first to the last stop of the Millennium Line in Greater Vancouver. By carefully splicing serial imagery to construct one still image, Khan Lee depicted the dynamics of Metro Vancouver and its urban expansion through compressed time.
