Shadow Dialling

Shadow Dialling is a durational process that begins with observing areas of light as they move through a space – along a wall or a floor. By tracing the line between shadow and light at timed intervals I create drawings that become quasi maps to orientate a faded shadow path, something otherwise invisible. This process of tracing the line between shadow and light echoes the early photographic desire to catch shadows, fix an image and capture the preserved moment. Shadow Dial prints are taken mid way, during or at the end of the process.
