If you search for a needle in a haystack for too long, you start to get bored, then tired, then angry. If you get angry enough, you might even throw the whole haystack away, but then you've lost the needle forever.
This piece was created with Lisette Miller-Dixon, who came up with the original idea when we discovered a bale of hay that had inexplicable found its way into her photography studio.
