Each year from June to August, my father is busy making hay: he mows the fields, teds the grass, rakes it together, and moves the hay to the barn with a bale trailer. In so doing, he comes into contact with almost every square meter of the land. In the summer of 2012, I recorded seven of his daily paths, from morning to evening, with a GPS device. In the Winter of 2013, using a camera and a specially developed instrument—the star pencil—I traced these paths with the light of a star. Through long exposure, the tracks of the star imprint themselves on the negative.
