    Exposure.  There are presently just under 1,000 2.25”x2.25”
contact prints. Each day, I place a piece of black
and white photo paper under the same black and white photo negative and put it
in a jar. The photograph on the negative is a view of the North Atlantic from
northern Iceland. The jar stays outside for 24 hours, creating a contact print
on the paper, a record of each day’s light. The jar travels with me, so I make
a photo of the same place, northern Iceland, wherever I go. After the contact
prints are made, I run them through a fixative bath without putting them
through developer so that they retain the distinctive colors they develop over
24 hours.   



 Installation view of  Exposure .
The prints are installed on a slim wall shelf, creating a horizon in the
gallery. Here, the prints are installed all the way around the outside of the
room, mimicking the geography of an island. 2009 - Ongoing.
