All Horizons

From Rhizome Artbase

All Horizons is based on a selection of 150 photographs taken by 127 individuals under a Creative Commons license. I was interested in selecting material that made the horizon the subject of the image. The photographs are ordered serially to form a narrative describing a single, archetypal gesture--told through the lenses of independent agents, brought together by means of a single, external objective and curatorial intent. By treating the horizon as a constant, the work comments on the universally shared perception and experience of space, across cultures and locations, and reflects on how our individual experience at all times is part of a larger continuum.
