For the series called Encompassing, I leave cameras alone while I walks somewhere else, while I
sleep. Time passes without me. The cameras meanwhile are recording all time and space they can
record, and the limitations of the optics and the movements of the celestial bodies are defining the
image. But it is clear that space and time continue around the recorded image and beyond the time
of the exposure, and it is also clear that a wider lens and a longer exposure won’t help. This would
be futile. Spaces are sometimes bigger than we can handle: Pilot Peak 1 shows the place where the
Donner Party struggled through the mud in 1846.
