big light, sighted objects is an exploration of the three-legged relationship among object, site, and body. Set in the landscape of the Rio Grande Watershed, it is revealed through a series of handmade pinhole film cameras, each with unique capabilities. The project is tied to three distinct ecoregions: the Rio Grande headwaters, the Gila Wilderness, and Big Bend State Park. At each of these sites, I assigned a category of seeing, and then designed a camera to suit -- for example: expanse, the peripheral, and the unseen. Each design was a response to the last, and occurred in a kind of evolutionary succession as the use of one camera would lead to new thoughts on how we, as humans, see and experience the world. This project was developed in conjunction with the Land Arts of the American West program in 2014.
