“It sits looking

over harbor and city

on silent haunches

and then moves on.”

-Carl Sandburg


Fog is caused by tiny water droplets suspended in the air, arriving quickly and completely as it covers parts of the horizon. Reducing the distance and visibility of the human eye, the opacity reveals a new negative space of a present time and site. Giving something that initially lacked tangibility in the world a denser presence.  Sometimes it disappears when approached, sometimes it consumes you into a vague and hueless zone. The breath of a place, a system with no purpose, a silent cycle.
