All bodies of nature, including our own, are assemblages of animal, vegetable and mineral elements. Embedded in the stone coast where these photographs were found are geophysiological narratives of living cycles that articulate the intimacy of collective evolution. This collection is the result of a three-year relationship between the artist, the materialities of place and the materiality of practice. Situated as coauthored expressions of synchronous exchange rather than a collection of literal moments the work was realised using a 20th century wooden camera, handcrafted by a student of Ansel Adams, shot on film and printed with pigment ink on cotton paper.
