To create the prints that make up the Black Flash series I “mark” unexposed gelatin-silver paper with the flash of a point & shoot camera. After the paper is processed, the blinding light is reversed and a black form emerges. Like drawing, the action has occurred directly on the surface; the print is the site of documentation and recording. The subject matter is no more than the process itself: the light of the flash and the paper catching it. The minute grainy details in the black represent shadows catching on the fibers of the paper, which again point to its status as an object. The size of the grid is constrained by the 24 frames of film in the camera used to flash the paper.
