the illuminated becoming blind evokes the blue hour, the twilight between day and night. The haunted and anxious nature of the blue hour rests within the photographic like a shimmering cloak of silver. Miner’s artistic practice explores the fundamental elements of photography through oblique references to its rarely seen reference points, including the spaces of its production. The photographs, assemblages, and video works in the exhibition investigate the material and conceptual nature of photography. Essential to this investigation is a consideration of the qualities of lightness, darkness, reflection, and refraction. In asking what photography is, Miner's work proposes a conversation based on relations of the anxious, cyclical, and askew.
