There are moments where our visual perception is tested creating a moment where the invisible become visible to the naked eye. The landscape has an innate quality to conjure this type of moment during twilight that allows its changing light and emerging shadows to transform into a plane for liminal space to become visible. Liminal space is described as an in-between space, a space of transition, waiting, or anticipation. The landscape is a place that naturally changes with just a slight shift in light to darkness. In the shadows and changing light the small things that are hidden away begin to surface allowing for the perception of that moment to be altered. These moments are where visual perception is tested creating a window into liminal space. Capturing the shadows of constructed landscapes creates the imagery for Searching for the Threshold. Using the natural landscape as inspiration to construct artificial landscapes into hand-built sets using found and hand-made objects, each set is then lit creating a new landscape of shadows. These shadow landscapes are then photographed and edited digitally to create panoramic images.
