Hotel Monterey

Hotel Monterey

The hotel seems to pulsate arrhythmically, walls flexing, elevators moving sporadically, lights flickering, people coming and going. It's dingy and ugly, but the camera finds angles from which it is symmetrical or striking, close up where the details blur or from a distant where the details blend with bad paint and paneling. Small movements and alterations indicate life, indicate energy, indicate action, but the sense of decay remains, the stillness is never wholly thwarted.
