Everywhere All at Once: Photos by Vanessa Marsh
Photos that explore the workings of memory and imagination centered around ideas of dislocation, geography and infrastructure.
Sometimes there is a hazy, almost tropical light that falls over the Bay Area. The moisture in the air falls on the landscape so as to make it appear as a series of two-dimensional planes all intricately layered together. When I see this light, I imagine all of these layers as individual planes of landscape, each existing independently and moving freely along it’s own trajectory like a miniature tectonic plate. In my imagination, the landscape becomes one of dislocated landmarks, geography and infrastructure, constantly changing. Within the series Everywhere All at Once I bring to form these imagined landscapes and combine them with intensely starlit skies, highlighting both a very personal as well as a collective experience of the world. In the end, my goal is to make images that are familiar and dreamlike, evocative of an almost unreachable memory.You can see more of her work at her website.
