Can you imagine a being more crazed with sadness than a messenger who can deliver nothing?

Can you imagine a being more crazed
with sadness than a messenger who
can deliver nothing?

– Mark Cousins

The glass negatives depicted in this series were found by chance and photographed in sunlight, seeking to re-awaken them in the present. The scenes and figures imprinted on the glass are of unclear origin and their meaning is uncertain; the content seems to have dissolved into an inert materiality. Time has transformed them from images to abandoned objects, but capturing the moment of contact with the sun allows the object to become an image once again.
