Halpern's works are about a pinning down in time of natural and artificial structures.
In a basic sense the natural often seems more transient while the artificial
pretends to be eternal. Halpern's photographs, videos, sculptures, and slide
installations blend these levels and frequently radiate a sort of uncanny romaticism.
