On the Difficulties of Picturing the event

4 text collages.
36×28 cm each.

The collages compose a particular narrative summing excerpts found in hundreds of scientific reports and papers written throughout the course of solar eclipse expeditions. They are narrative threads patching fragments of accounts of astronomical experiences, evidencing the inconclusive nature of some of these solar eclipse observations, the personal experiences recounted in the logs and diaries, and the general apparatus that facilitated the production of scientific knowledge.
