Self Portrait, Killing Time, 1998


MATERIALS: Cibachrome print.

    This is the seventh from a series of photographs called 'Wake'. Each photograph in the series has an individual title. The only source of light in these photographs comes from the minute headlight of a toy train running along its tracks. As I play in the dark with the trains (for approximately 30 minutes), the light eventually accumulates to form the picture.
