Shared Air
Silver Gelatin Prints, 11"x14"
2020

Using an image of the sky between Detroit, Michigan, USA and Windsor, ON, Canada taken during the double event of the global Coronavirus pandemic and wildfires in California obscuring the sky with a haze for weeks. Because of the haze, the analogue image reads as flat - the film grain more discernable than anything else. In the darkroom salvaged glass is used to reflect and refract the image as its projected onto the paper, other than the resulting image there is no record of the actions made to create it. The resulting images play with containment, reflection and visibility as analogues to the surrounding political, social and environmental conditions.
