Lori Hepner
Paddle #0079, Yukon River, Canada, 2017
from the series Excursionary Auras, in Situ

Lori created this artwork during a 21-day canoe trip into remote Northern Canada as part of an artist residency she participated in, in July of 2016. The series that resulted, is one-part performance art, and one-part traditional landscape - transformed for the digital age. The original photograph was shot from inside the ruin of a log cabin in the gold rush region, on the edge of a river in the Yukon. It’s dark, because the only light coming in was through a hole in the roof that had caved in. To create this work, Lori places a digital negative of the image onto an SD card, which she transfers into a 6-foot-tall LED light stick. She opens her camera shutter and hits play. As she moves, her camera captures the scrolling arc of light emanating from the LEDs, and records both dance and light into the still photograph we see here.
