This forthcoming publication will bring together, for the first time, the work made and ephemera gathered during a 2010 Fulbright Fellowship spent in Chile. While there, I had access to the photographic archives of the National Astronomical Observatory, and I joined astrophysicists using the world’s most sophisticated telescopes in the Atacama Desert. I also experienced one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded. Against this backdrop, I made work that engaged my interest in astronomical observation as being shaped by deeply human, aesthetic and subjective experiences that are often mediated by cameras and photographic images.
