light, contour, & exciting the cell

It was surprising to find that translucent ink and reflective paper flipped white & shadow tones depending on the angle of light. This coincided with readings on visual awareness and spatial perception, and led to an exploration in how light reveals, suggests, and changes what we notice in our surroundings and how we interact with space. I later stumbled upon vintage pocket atlases and was drawn to their authoritative proclamations on being the ‘most accurate’ and ‘complete’ documentations of ‘the known world.’  My own ‘pocket edition’ followed, with each book collecting a varied and unique set of these ‘definitive’ observations of temporary landmarks made by the changing light.
