ABOUT THE ARTWORK

"Photography is a method for communing with the past. It is my way of building futures. The photograph is recorded time. It is moments of light made still. The photograph tells a story. The dark room, the sunlight, making records of time passing," explains Ayeroff. Ayeroff processes her film with a non-toxic developer made from coffee and vitamin C. Caffenol. "This is a process rich with flaws," she says. "My film is streaked with stains. Scan it and the image is brightly colored, the scanner software strangely interpreting light as nearly neon, contemporary. Printing in the darkroom with caffenol as the developer, stains the paper coffee colored, dating it. My artworks are a record of my research, they are methods for searching, they are the documents of my movements back to the land. They remind me of the value of the wild, of the soil, of the giant majestic mountains. They remind me to try to move mountains. They allow me to move mountains. An earnest, perhaps naive, attempt to make the world better."
