Trevor Poudrier explores darkness, consciousness and light

Earlier this month, visitors to Southern Pine Company’s STEAM ROOM (an alternative exhibition space at 620 E 35 St.) peeled back the curtain and stepped inside a cave of blind darkness, waiting with shallow breath for the shadows of friends to appear ahead of them.
