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





X Marks the Spot,
 Silver gelatin print, 2015.

This forest is an impenetrable monoculture,
too densely planted for anything to grow between,
and with soil that is growing more and more acidic.
Eerily quiet, it is both overgrown and empty.
I wanted to find a way to penetrate the space;
I penetrated it with an impossible X focal plane.
