In the series Air/Plains, I reconstitute the ever-familiar image of the setting sun, photographed over a two-week period in the Great Plains region of central Nebraska, into a photograph that is both representation and object. The title refers to the content of the image, sky and earth, and also to the object into which the photograph has been folded - an airplane. The resulting image holds the illusionistic space of the landscape while being photographic documentation of its manipulation.  The collapsing of the photographic space through folding creates an image where the intangible and the tactile coexist and the ephemeral is made into an object.
