"DC Sun Deconstruction" ~ Work Process
These photographs compress an elaborate sixty-second choreography into a single image. Working with digitally produced slides, I strategically project images onto the landscape, and document the result through time-lapse photography. During the extended-exposure, I move through the frame with a white screen, creating a kinetic projection surface to capture and reflect parts of the projection as it travels through space.
I approach this process as an opportunity to step inside the camera, and darkroom simultaneously, where I become a physical agent in the construction of the image. Within this space I am enabled to work more directly with light, time, and optical phenomena. Through this interrogation of the photographic process I am exploring my own questions regarding the psychology of perception, and its role in the construction of subjective experience.
