“Shroud” is a photographic installation consisting of a simple juxtaposition between an image of a cloudy sky is juxtaposed with a folded length of linen cloth that was prior-smoked with frankincense.

The word “Shroud” as a noun could refer to the garment used to wrapping the corpse in a burial ceremony.

As a verb, the word “Shroud” could also mean “to cover or conceal”. Therefore, when describing a cloudy sky, we could also say it is shrouding over us.
