Light Moving on Two Strings, 2001
B/W photographic series of 4 images 30x40 cm.

 

In this installation, two white strings were extended from the
ceiling in a room with 2 south-facing windows. As the light moved
through the room, the position of the strings was changed in such
a way as to ensure that one string would remain in shadow and
the other in light. Each time the position of a string was altered, a
large-format B/W photograph was taken.

Two Strings Moving with Light, 2001
B/W photographic series of 4 images 30x40 cm

A light and a dark string were extended diagonally from ceiling
to floor through a room lit from the south. As time passed a small
section of the two strings seemed to be undistinguishable in
tone. 4 photographs were made focusing on this area of non-differentiablility
as its position on the two strings changed.
