These images taken of the sky at my home are the result of a combination of analog and digital steps starting with separate exposures made at random intervals on one piece of film. The final works contain artifacts from the film, the scanner and the digital process making this a hybrid image that does not reflect an actual moment but several moments. The sky where I live is both beautiful and toxic. The interplay of these concerns gives rise to the title Backyard High: locating the work in my home, the act of looking up and the mixed feelings brought about by the visible transcendent beauty in combination with the knowledge that something darker lurks in the air entering body with each breath.
