Rebirth is a lighting product made from real egg shells.
Hatch is a planter made from real egg shells.
Anything done in series starts to carry more information (amount, aspect and rate of change), and starts to capture and communicate what can't be seen: time, expectation, duration, rhythm, surprise.
Robert Weingarten's 6:30 AM SERIES documents the mornings of 2003.
From the project page:
"[Robert Weingarten] established a single viewpoint, looking southeast over Santa Monica Bay, from which every photograph in the series would be made with the camera in exactly the same position."
"Each exposure would be made at precisely the same time of day - 6:30 am - measured by one quartz clock. All exposures would be made with the lens focused on infinity and at the same aperture of f/22. Just two variables were allowed into this disciplined scheme: the shutter speed of the lens, which would be adjusted faster or slower depending on the quantity and quality of light available at 6:30 a.m. each day; and, the most variable element of all, changes in the scene that were introduced by the forces of nature."
