seven days of light
In this 8-image series (one plate, 7 prints) I reveal not only how an original image (prints) comes into being, but the passing of time used to create an image (something that is usually lost). To achieve this, I purposefully printed a single 24″ x 40″ brass plate in varying stages of perforation: first at the outermost corner; then further toward the center; then completely-over the course of seven prints-until the last print, in which the latticework of positive and negative space is completely visible.
“Seven” symbolizes the seven days of the initial Creation of the World. Much like in the way that, in the book of Genesis, light was created on the First Day, in the print series, light first appears with the brass plate’s first perforation and continues to increase on subsequent prints.
