Chinatown Voyeur is not the result of an intervention but exists in its own right and shows Chinatown in New York from sunset to sunrise. The skyline is alternated with zoomed-in images of windows, thus giving you a view of certain interiors. These seemingly voyeuristic images refer to early memories. Matta-Clark claimed that his first contact with other people did not take place on the street but from window to window. There is a clear parallel here with Hitchcock’s Rear Window.
