The Implied Line is in reference to The Camera Lucida. A Camera Lucida is an instrument in which rays of light are reflected by a prism to produce on a sheet of paper an image, from which a drawing can be made. The transparency on the image has changed, and the image becomes a digital light projection. By tracing and retracing the features of these photographs, I am mirroring the photo by creating the other and remaking the moments within the image with my own hands. The photograph is the trigger, and my tracing is the action. It’s a longing to be a part of the image; the artist becomes present.
