Megan Cump's "ATOMS / STONES" @ Station Independent Projects, New York

September 08, 2015

Megan Cump's series Atoms/Stones is a lyrical atlas made of night skies, insects, pre-historic carvings, and portraits of sleepers. In Spain, she encountered a 250,000-year-old fragment of a cranium; its interior, laced with map-like lines, sparked her investigation at the intersection of cosmology and cartography.

Charting their paths in the dark sky, stars, fireworks, and fireflies plot their coordinates in light and trace the universe on film. Other photographs were shot in Portugal's Côa River Valley, where Paleolithic images of animals were incised into rocks over 20,000 years ago, marking the route of late Ice Age migrations and the origins of art-making.
