Phases of the Fake Moon, 2009
ink, paper, x 250 x 260cm, Duration Variable
“Phases of the Fake Moon” are drawings necessarily made in the dark. The process of tracing a reflection of a shadow of a net placed on a round mirror is comparable to being inside a rudimentary camera. It is also analogous to how the moon is illuminated by reflected light, its shape defined by shadow. This pseudo-scientific process yielded the grid of drawings. Like a cloud, the net can evoke a myriad of associations, but its endlessly shifting form is what I find most useful.
