The sun doesn’t shine much in Olympia, Washington, so when I did see a spot of sunlight on something, I got excited. I realized that English doesn’t have a word for these spots of light - which made me think that we probably weren’t noticing them and certainly weren’t talking about them. I did this series of photographs and was pleased and thrilled when my classmates started telling me things like “I saw one of your light things on the stairs.” I realized that I was bringing something useful to the great visual potluck which had been feeding us all so wonderfully.
