sun ruins


I once had had a thought
About a thought I once had had 
About whether it was natural
For nature to seem so natural, 
Whether there was a Man in the Sun
Who steadied the sun with levers, 
Pulleys, and gears, and if so whether
He ever managed not to be there ...
Rowan Ricardo Philips, from 'Abingdon Square Park' (beautiful.)

Aspen Mays: Cerro Calán, 2011. Burn masks and Kodak box. From a body of work made at the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Chile's abandoned darkroom, using abandoned ephemera and vintage photographic paper and chemicals. More here (all wonderful) + discovered thanks to paperweight.
