Limen

A limen is the threshold at which something begins to be perceivable. This series is derived from negatives that accidentally mutated in the photographic process yet somehow retained enough information to be able to print images using digital processes. I had intended to document an event, but instead recorded only an impression of it – a subjective documentation using the allegedly objective technology of film.

Now the event itself becomes irrelevant, giving way to the experience of perception as the subject. Like a dream or memory almost tangible but not quite, on the periphery of vision focused outward and inward in the same moment, the images ultimately function like clues about something that either was or might have been, still lingering at the threshold of cognition.
