Folding Paper/Bending Light is a process of understanding formality and compromise.
For many years the scanner has been my camera. It reads and captures information slowly thus I spend hours watching light move. For this series of photographs I twisted and manipulated paper to create form. While the scanner records its contour, light gently bends. At first glance the relationships appear simple and spontaneous but upon further examination a suspended transformation, a complicated declaration, is discovered. It is the act of forcing a bend that can ultimately result in a fold. I have found, as with many things, even paper can be more of less forgiving. There is formality in the act where compromises are made and creating an abstract gesture can replace a verbalized concrete response. Where I anticipate solutions I accept constraints.
