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.
