Chronograph #1

Chronograph #1 (San Francisco Camerawork, San Francisco, CA. 12.10.15-02.06.16, Thirty-Two Pages for Thirty-Two Days)

Thirty-two page hand-bound cyanotype accordion book, San Francisco Camerawork, 12.10.15-2.3.16

This book has a page for each day of my Littoral Drift solo exhibition. Each morning, the gallery turned the page, revealing the next unexposed cyanotype-coated folio. As pages exposed throughout the day, staff made photographs of the changing image on a timeline based on a Fibbonacci sequence. A time-lapse video of the entire book exposing is forthcoming.

19″x24″x2″ (as a closed book), 19″x384″ (when fully opened)

Chronograph #4

Chronograph #4 (Euqinom Projects, San Francisco, CA. 09.07.16-10.29.16 & Exhibition Dates TBD, Four Pages for Each of the Four Cardinal Directions)

20″x20″x3″ (as a closed book), 144″x144″x8″ (when fully opened)

The book rests on a low, recessed Plexigalss pedestal.  Each day for the first month of the show, the gallery opens a page first thing in the morning, allowing for light exposure to begin. On day one, a page on the North side of the book should open, day two East, day three South, day four West, day five North, day six East, and so on until all sixteen pages are revealed to light. The book unfolds like jagged mountains, with pages landing with a variety of peak heights.

This Chronograph is made to expose over two exhibition periods: the first is the duration of Of Many Minds at Euqinom Projects, and the second will be coordinated by the artist and the collector or institution that acquires the book. All of the pages of the Chronograph are deliberately coated with light-sensitive cyanotype on both sides, but only the recto side will expose during Of Many Minds, leaving the verso side of the book prepared for a second exhibition and second set of exposure.
