lux

For the series lux, images from my past (including family photographs and personal snapshots) were faded into a variety of surfaces and objects that are also drawn from my past, such as book covers, boxes, cardboard, coloured paper, diaries, plastic objects and gift wrapping. This process of fading occurs simply through prolonged exposure (in some cases over several months) to sunlight. That is to say, rather than ink or emulsion applied to the objects, the image is faded into the surface itself. Produced purely through the action of light, the continued exposure of the works to light threatens to fade the image out, rendering them fugitive images.
