    About The Work

    With a photographic aspect, focusing on the ecological state of coastal spaces, Dusk/Daybreak is a series of experimental digital prints that capture daylight transitions using bi-tone pigmented gradations.

    Confronting the bleak reality of marine debris that lay around the beaches where Cruet collects found objects, each print emerges from a photographic source - a log of a day on a coast, layered with fragmented screenshots from social media, as well as views of the sky and the sand.

    The paper has been reprinted several times and colors bleed vertically, fading from one to the other, alluding to the light transitions of the day seen in the sky at dawn and dusk - the perceived daily division of time - while revealing intimate details captured through his photographic sources. Symbolically, the change in day and night offers the most dramatic contrast between light and darkness, between consciousness and unconsciousness, the seen and the unseen, and has a biological effect in the environment, as well on mankind. The work connects an intricate system of relationships among its subjects, symbols, visual elements, and the depicted time and space.
