While technically seeking to refine the beginnings of photography, Fuss attempts, in the 100 new works presented here, to record life and death. Colorful spirals created by pendulums lead into great depths- snakes create geometric waves in water- loving pairs of rabbits appear in silhouette- a hunched woman cries- sunflowers sprout withered leaves and broken stems- otherwise placid water bears the concentric marks of water drops- the shadows of silvery childrens clothing hover in mid-air- light reflects on birds in flight--and all, for Fuss, mark the simultaneous presence and absence of the corporeal under the title My Ghost.
