Because the Sky
is the Same Sky for Everyone
Artist Book and photographs: These images are digital negatives, a series of moons/suns/black holes. The rainbow-hued skies have not been added in digitally or manipulated in any way – the night sky translates simply to a latent color field when inverted, as they are here - night to... a new kind of day, a place beyond the here and now.
An Artist Book in an edition of 50 and housed in a clear plexiglass case, as well as a series of large-scale prints, "Because the Sky" posits an alternate reality beyond that of the known or visible world. The titles are taken from cocktails - for my mother, who liked a drink when day crosses over to night.
