One of the unique properties of silhouettes is their capacity to capture shadows, holding onto to them through the tracings photography and other media make. Historically, this has given silhouettes the ability to span time—to fuse together the past and present—in a similar manner as photography. Both have the ability to seize what is ephemeral, an absence that is a presence.
Suspended Resonance is a collection of photogram portraits. Photograms, a camera-less process of working directly on photographic paper with light and chemicals, make visible what is invisible. These often invisible primary photographic elements become coupled with fleeting and immaterial shadows in the tangible photograph itself.
