A Tone • Atone • At One Diptych, 2017-2018, [Jökulsárlón Too], dye sublimation on 36x24" aluminum, and [Jökulsárlón], luster print mounted on 12x12x2" acrylic mandala to exhibit on a plinth in front of (or next to) Jökulsárlón Too, multiple layer digital photographs. The experience of numinosity, or the vague impression of forces greater than one’s self, is at the heart of these works photographed along Route 1 in Iceland. In the final return from a two-year academic journey, I encountered this liminal place where psyche and cosmos intersect. Here void meets light; formlessness meets form; and matter becomes energy to profoundly illuminate my understanding of universal binary tensions. Digital manipulation of multiple mirrored images of myself in this location reveal an ethereal being frozen in time and space. These photographs present an uncanny moment of atonement with my embeddedness in existence.
