Blue Line of Woods, 2010 - Present
Fleeting shadows of the forest floor are captured temporarily on a massive scale. The cameraless images on the original prints (diazotypes) fade over time, commenting on the transient qualities of both the form and content.
Equal parts Carlton Watkins and Anna Atkins, I am interested in visualizing a space over hours and days instead of fractions of a second. Usually installed in darkened rooms, one must spend time with the images before the details begin to reveal themselves.
Each panel measures approximately three feet wide by six feet high, and are typically produced in pairs or groups of four. I've also done several site-specific commissions using this process with great success.
A limited edition book was made in 2013.
