In this photograph there is an actual wooden cube balanced on top of a rock. The cube has three prints on it which have been distorted in such a way that the camera, when placed back in its original location, re-distorts them to simulate "correct" perspective.

THE DISAPPEARANCE
Two towers were built on either side of a lake, sixty feet apart with a suspension cable in between in order to realize this project.

ODE
This ladder to nowhere was originally supposed to be eight feet higher. Built in several four-foot sections, the second to last section caused the whole thing to virtually collapse. As a result I had to repair it with materials found on the beach. What might have been an arrogant gesture became, for the better, something else.

LANDSCAPE FOR BENJAMIN
For this photograph I loaded materials into my car and set out to find somewhere very flat; several days later I found myself in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. Each of the blackboards is a different size, but look the same because of their placement relative to the camera. The largest one was too large to fit in my car, so I cut it.
