Decision Altitude: Incident Report uses the medium of photography to examine the physical and psychological experience of skydiving. Images of falling skydivers are captured using a pin-hole camera and printed using a photo-etching process. The means of capture and output are selected to highlight the performative nature and physicality of photography. Thresholds of light, the body, space, and time are collapsed into the images as the physical limitation of gravity, the impermanence of the body and the medium of photography are explored.
