Light Year of Lead, 2014 - 2017

"Light Year of Lead" is based around a series of dark matter and neutrino experiments that occur in deep underground mines. By comparing the radically different spaces of natural caves and scientific laboratories, I hope to explore larger binaries such as objectivity and subjectivity, the massive and the infinitesimal, and the human aesthetics in experimental science. The photographs were made at Fermilab in Batavia, IL, the Soudan Mine near Ely, MN, and the Sanford Laboratory in Lead, SD. This project is a work-in-progress.
