Eyes Closed (Reflections of the Outer World Burn Upon Her Retina)   
2017-2020

Eyes Closed investigates what constitutes a photograph; in this case, an image of the sun is created not by its form, but by the energy it emits. Using the end of a 35mm film roll,  a minuscule dot of cyanotype chemistry is dropped onto the film and left to develop under the afternoon sunlight. When digitally scanned as a negative, this dot transforms into a large sun floating above the horizon line.
