Atom by Atom

 

The Atom by Atom series was inspired by the reading of two books. A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson and How (Not) to Speak of God by Peter Rollins. One is a work based in the scientific explanation of life while the other is a theological discussion of relational experience. Bryson begins with a statement that I found incredibly curious, that at the molecular level our material and make up are identical to that of every other object in existence. So in its construction atom by atom (one might say) we are the same as a table or a body of water. Of course we are not a table or a body of water. But like any creature or object we exist within boundaries. These prints are in the form of early kodak photographs, specific documented moments in time. Working within images of the everyday these prints explore our daily interaction with, and disobedience of, these boundaries.
