Nox Borealis presents a series of 4 oversized photographic images where very little is depicted. Shot on the Arctic tundra of Baffin Island, they attempt to recreate a diorama at almost 1:1 scale. Our sense of place is always mediated by the environmental conditions and geographic situation in which we find ourselves. The images here are inverted: a gesture that acknowledges the profound sense of disorientation one experiences when confronted with spaces so vast that they are difficult to behold, let alone understand. The majority of the surfaces in these images are devoted to black. This blackness presents us with both the endless space of the Arctic night (and day), and a pearlescent photographic surface that exists very much within the physical space of the viewer. Whether these 4 views are separate and distinct or whether they can be perceptually combined into a sort of panoramic and omniscient view is left deliberately indeterminant. Nox Borealis both reinforces and questions photography's ability to evoke other places and in so doing reminds us, perhaps, that the experience of looking at nature is always mediated by our notions of what is real and what is artificial.
