Would we conserve our environment wiser if we thought of nature like mist?

Kaʻena Point is a jewel in its example of nature preservation and conservation. This magnificent land is the embodiment of the physical and cultural richness of Hawaii. But Kaʻena Point, as well as nature globally, is currently endangered by climate change. In this series of work, the aesthetics of mist is a metaphor for the sublime of nature but also the fragile state of nature and our current environmental plight. In the process of using mist, screens of vapor are created onto which images are then projected. After re-photographing these images on the vapor screens, these altered mist images become the final photographs, a modality known as “Mist-Based Photography.” Additionally, this series strives to include an experiential opportunity for viewers to actively participate in the experience of these mist projections. Innovative elements such as the “Sublimer”, (a mist viewing box), “Mist-Based Photographs” and “Photographic Light Forms” were used in the presentation of these images.
