The silkscreens are of a series of images chosen from numerous documentary sources that depict subjects in a state of
rapture. The original photographs have been refracted in-camera through a piece of kaleidoscope in the process of reshooting.
The mediation of historical images by analog means (no digital manipulation or output) further obscures the
date of production and flattens the images, allowing them to haunt the present from an uncanny dimension. Reproduced in
a medium that is effective for wide distribution, the disparate subjects depicted herein now circulate in a disembodied
form as though in accordance with the represented desires for a seemingly universal transcendence.
