Immaterial   Captured in the South Island of New Zealand, these works look at the perception of the individual in splendid landscapes. “Transitory” references the hyperbolic scenes in romantic paintings throughout history. Similar to the work of Eugene von Guérard, this work represents a personal response to each location. Like Caspar David Friedrich’s "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog” 1818, the scene is altered from reality to express emotional response. In this case, part of that expression is evoked by the unpredictable nature of the equipment used. Using an old German 35mm film camera, multiple light exposures are layered. The positions of the exposures are only estimated, as is the rewinding of the film.
