The Grass House is a series of eight photographs taken along a familiar path for the artist, on the rim of Haleakala Crater in Maui, Hawai’i. The walk was meant to be an exercise in placing himself in the narrator’s position in The Findings: of retracing one’s steps in order to recover a familiar and but lost thing, only to be surprised by its continuous metamorphosis. Fittingly, the walk took an unexpected turn when the mountain became shrouded in an all-encompassing fog, obscuring all recognizable features.  Recovering the landscapes in his mind’s eye became impossible, and Graydon was left to photograph the opaque atmosphere itself.
