A Year of Tree
From the 27th June 2018 and the 26th June 2019, I took weekly Polaroids of a tree near where I work .

It is presented as both an animated sequence of original Polaroids and a printed spatial layering of those times

In 2009 I was at Ruby Gap in the MacDonald ranges. I sat on a hill from sunrise till sunset, recording the changing light as the day passed.
