The match cycle is created between 2015 and 2019. The exposure of both the panels and the photographic paper follow the same principle. The panels depict an analog recording of light without the aid of a camera, enlarger or exposure unit. The raster in matches 1.0 and 2.0 implies digitalized photography as a development stage of photography as a medium. A match is a small, primary industrial product. Fire is an essential achievement in the progress of humankind.
