FLOTSAM (2003-2006)
Ventura Beach, California.
webcam composite/ digital Lightjet print, 71" x 106"

FLOTSAM appropriates a so-called beach-cam, usually used by surfers to monitor the waves. In the composite, passers-by become protagonists against a backdrop of rocks and sand colored by the changing tides and diurnal rhythms. A boulder has a double shadow -one captured in the morning, the other in the evening. A piece of driftwood appears several times in the image, having been picked up and dropped elsewhere by a beachcomber.
