Inside Out is an exploration of the different speeds of ‘aging’ resulting from either indoor protection or exposure to outdoor elements.
Using heavy watercolor paper, I placed a sheet inside in a sunny window, and one directly below it, out of doors. Natural processes and the elements – rain, cold, hail, dust and dirt, intense Texas heat – took their toll on the outdoor paper. For a year, I photographed the piece each day.
The final photograph shows both pieces of paper: the worn outdoor paper is mounted on the pristine, white inside paper, with not even a mark from the shadow of the sun on it.
This is a time-based piece is in two forms: photographs and video. (Video link under construction.)
