Visible Systems

Vis­i­ble Sys­tems depicts flo­ra against back­grounds of blue sky and white clouds. Show­ing tiny plants from the sur­face of the earth, the work address­es the fig­u­ra­tive and lit­er­al role of sur­face as a bar­ri­er to both vision and knowl­edge. The pho­tographs were made by set­ting the shut­ter timer and plac­ing the cam­era on the ground: allow­ing the cam­era to become an exten­sion of my own vision and a tool for gain­ing access to what was pre­vi­ous­ly unseen.
