Visible Systems, is a carefully arranged constellation of color photographs. Varying in size, each image depicts flora against backgrounds of blue sky and white clouds. Showing tiny plants from the surface of the earth, the work addresses the figurative and literal role of surface as a barrier to both vision and knowledge. The variation of image size further distorts perception of scale and proportion. I made the photographs by setting the shutter timer and placing the camera on the ground: allowing the camera to become an extension of my own vision and a tool for gaining access to what was previously unseeable.
