Staring at the Sky and the Screen
Dreaming of Other Celestial Bodies
Wondering What They're Looking at
Breaking Branches and Bending Grids

Measuring Half-lives on the Horizon

Artist's Statement

Faux Northern Lights, Archival inkjet print, 2013.

I've only seen the Northern Lights twice;
both times they were faint and unimpressive.
The photos I've seen are so much more vibrant.
So when I wanted to make a photograph of them,
I decided that I didn't need the Northern Lights at all.
