Chronographs are exhibition-specific books comprised of unexposed cyanotype folios, with one folio for each day of an exhibition. The exhibitor turns the book to a new a page each day, thereby initiating exposure. The books are cumulative records of the environment; pages change throughout the day, responding to the light, weather, and time. The cyanotype pages are never fixed, their fugitive nature pointing to impermanence and the ever-changing nature of our complicated relationship to our environment.
