sneaky cinema

gentle image implosions

the sky and the ground

sunshine, cyanotype, the ground 

the sky and the ground is a series of cyanotype photograms made by placing dust from the ground on light-sensitve paper in sunlight. The developed images look like both the ground and the sky, or by way of indexical trace, chance and gravity, and the simple fact that cyanotypes are blue, embody or mimic something of both. What these images depict actually is perhaps what is in between: actively confounding the typical structure of a landscape image (the position of sun, subject, and ground), they are an attempt to make a minimally invasive image, while articulating something closer to a sense of lived space.
