about the collaborators

in her current series lifelines, 1994-present, electrical cords depicted in the photograph power the light source that illuminates the space.  interior lights, 2019, is lynn’s first foray into animation. working with animated images instead of sequencing a set of still photographs in a book, interior lights is a natural extension of her ongoing desire to discover more nuanced relationships between people and places.
