"A camera roll film shot on the coast of Rabbit Island, an islet in Lake Superior three miles east of Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula. Built from sandstone formations dating back over 900 million years, Rabbit Island's coastline harbors traces of staggering geologic activity, conjuring images of ancient highlands, invading seas, and the slow, relentless action of sedimentation and compaction. While thinking about this drama, I charted a loose trajectory across the surface of a single expanse of sandstone at the island's northwest edge. I used my camera to map its diversity of visible forms -- the 'micro-events' of color variations, cracks and divots, distributions of lichens, etc. -- shooting in short bursts so that images might accumulate like falling waves." -JG
