Corpo di luce

A beam of light emitted by the photographic enlarger strikes the photosensitive gelatin silver paper and alters its surface. There is no photographic negative inside the device. The paper is unfixed and free to change over time depending on environmental conditions.  The surface retains the light, absorbs it, lets itself be transformed by it. It’s a changing body, a vanishing presence, an attempt to look at the face of a god. It’s a screen, a projection of the uncertain, the unobservable. 

The absence of a narrative, the inability to describe a present, indefinite human condition. 

Space of pure light.
