Universal SympathyScattering my Grandfather's cremated ashes onto photographic paper as large-scale photograms, a vision of the universe appears in which one can see almost as far back in time as the Big Bang, reconnecting the remains of the dead with the origin of all life. Through the indexical trace left by the ash, a black hole emerges in which the void wrought by the loss of the other is made evident. In studying the relationship between photography and death, I have sought to question the photograph as a sublime object in which the limits of human imagination to perceive the infinite in the finite may be revealed.
