The physical presence of a space transformed by light, or by the shadows that define it. Photographic paper that holds the inscription of the visible and the invisible, the moment of record and this moment now. Taking cues from the earliest inventors of photography, Amy Theiss Giese's skiagrams seek to give a contemporary context to traditional silver images. Creating in situ installations of her large-scale camera-less images allows her to draw attention to singular moments that then become an immersive experience for the viewer. Her talk will focus on the development of her process, the historical and contemporary context of the work and future ideas for developing the ongoing project.
