This photographic body of work is both anthropological and personal, having to do with journeys, dreams, and the unconscious. These visions are translated into a reality as the invented archaeological constructions are assembled into the appropriate sites. Each site is assembled, photographed, and dismantled within one day. The temporal nature of the constructions parallels the short life of the Navajo SAND PAINTINGS. Shamans use these paintings during healing ceremonies. The sands are swept away by sunset. The brief life of these archeological scenes mirrors the ephemeral nature of our existence. The photograph is the sole trace of the original construction. Like a tomb, the image's role is to ensure the preservation of an idea. I offer, from my protected environments, bits of light bundled and transplanted the photograph as artifact.
