EXPOSURE follows the movements of a hand, burrowing an opening into a glaring white surface, which turns out to be sand. As the hole becomes deeper and darker, hand is struck by the direct sunlight and it´s image appears overexposed, like a white negative. On the bottom of the hole, the shimmering surface of the emerging water appears and alternates with collapsing masses of sand, resulting in an almost dramatic action. The hand ultimately regains positive shape when the sea level is reached. Her physicality returns, yet as a mere reflection on the surface of the water. The image is exposed.
