This work was made during our residency at KIAC in Dawson City, Yukon. Magnifying glasses supported by simple constructions were placed on a picnic table at specific angles in order to track the movement of the sun throughout the day. By carefully positioning the convex lens, a focal point of condensed sunlight burns a mark into the surface of the table. The marks left behind act as a record of passing time in a month where the sun barely sets and darkness never comes.
