From the article in The Miami Herald:

Works of art relating to, or based on, architectural principles are evident everywhere this Art Basel week. Simple line sculptures, grid-like paintings and the temporary fair structures themselves reveal this underpinning. One of the best examples out there: Time of the Empress, a seven-screen video installation from the New York duo Aziz + Cucher. The black-and-white animated drawings of buildings rising and falling, in the process of construction and disintegration, are simply mesmerizing. At times during the imploding of the structures, the swirling debris looks like insects swarming over the remains, the only things left existing. The video is both a universal take on decay and regeneration, and a very appropriate installation for our Miami.
