reflecting on light & space
A series reflecting on the constant, intense light of los angeles, while exploring our indirect awareness of space and time.
Seasonal, reflected light directly exposes silver gelatin paper and records our momentary, peripheral awareness of an object. A calendar of light slowly builds — every June two sharp pinpoints of light emerge and bounce off the coffee machine, while soft undulating spotlights on the ceiling from the cat water bowls announce that July has arrived.
The resulting soft palettes and fleeting abstract images speak to the sense of our surroundings that we create from the barest suggestion of information. While at the same time they deny an accurate depiction or firm record of the event, lending doubt to the accuracy of individual observations.
