In Ultraviolet Forest, landscapes are cast in UV spectrum, often used for forensics and medical imaging. Phosphorescence in the terrain-scapes as a sensory perception open a sublime visual memory into our bodied relationship with nature. The original images were made at Starved Rock State Park in Illinois, a historical battle site between settlers and natives. While present-day landscapes often gazed at through illuminated screens, the Ultraviolet Forest series invites viewers into a physical witness of bodied experience in visual material. These terrain-scapes are intended to be exhibited with the Bora video were informed by Nancy Holt and Richard Serra’s Boomerang video, posted after the images.
