Lost and Abandoned Balls
Lost and Abandoned Balls is a series begun November 2005. The series documents tennis ball that I encounter, in some ways it is an attempt to look at the confluence of art and scientific documentation. The series began when I did not gather a tennis ball from a small stream running through a Northern California Redwood forest. Seeing the ball in the Redwoods changed my perception of the place, what once seemed pristine, I became of all the other bits of trash around me. After I left the redwoods I regretted not photographing and collecting the ball.
