Drowning 48 17 x 22 inch Archival Inkjet Prints

“One must distrust the almost-the-same . . . , the practically identical, the approximate, the or-even, all surrogates, and all patchwork. The differences can be small, but they can lead to radically different consequences, like a railroad’s switch points,” one track leading, for example, through night and fog to Auschwitz-Birkenau, the extermination camp, another to Auschwitz-Monowitz, the industrial plant”
-Primo Levi, Periodic Table
“Drowning,” a series of 48 photographs installed in grid format, suggests the dangers of generalization and provokes the viewer to recognize subtle shifts and changes that bring about varying results within the work. Generative and abstract, in “Drowning” Knight places emphasis on the camera as an archive machine and the artist as performer/ intervener.
