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.
