intervals and forms of stones of stars investigates a Nordic man-made beach landscape. Located near Copenhagen, Køge Bay Beach Park is a 7-kilometer-long recreational area reclaimed from the sea. While highly planned and regulated, the idea was to create a landscape that looked like wild nature. The book is a reflection of this anthropocene biotope, its botany, and its cultural context. Through a series of camera-less photographic registrations, Buhl maps the biotope’s flora, fauna, and particles and draws connections between the characteristics of the site and its photographic representation.
Her photographs are inspired by the camera-less photographic works of W. H. Fox Talbot (1840s) and A. Strindberg (1890s); images created without a photographic lens, only by use of light and light sensitive surfaces. In the photographs, dust particles resemble the night sky and the wings of an insect look like a topographical map.

The book contains the series of full-page photographs as well as a text of field notes and two conversations, with N. Bubandt, Professor of Anthropology, Aarhus University and with L. Gallun, Assistant Curator of Photography at MoMA, New York.
