Memories of the Future, 2020
Archival pigment print on dibond, UV plexi face mount, aluminum brace
48h x 36.5w in (121.9h x 92.7w cm)
Ed: 3 + AP
Signed verso

As if a jumbotron exploded and a chunk of pixels landed at your feet, Memories of the Future, 2020 is a full roll of transparency film, in shooting order, presented as object, conceptually intertwining macro and micro, past and present, and foregrounding the materiality of the image carrier itself.

Each 'pixel' is, in actuality, a photographically acquired abstraction of the azure daytime sky, as well as a window into our universe’s past. Slight gradient variations in light disturb an otherwise monochromatic severe-clear atmosphere, yet an intriguing balance remains.

The work does not require a frame. It is ready to hang or place immediately.

Failure is Becoming, 2014 is a digital photocollage comprised of vernacular photographs of the streets of Lower Manhattan, rephotography of computer monitors, and a unique handmade darkroom printing process. During the course of this work, required computational processes routinely met the limit of their capabilities, resulting in severe technological disruption, including crash screens, glitches, wireframes and other errors. All aforementioned were photographically reingested and incorporated, almost as patchwork, until the desired composition was reached.

The New Sky, 2012/2017

Archival pigment print
33h x 50w in (83.82h x 127w cm)
Ed: 10 + AP

The New Sky, 2012/2017 is part of an ongoing series centered around solastalgia, which deconstructs elements of nature into technologically influenced states. Doubling, inverting and combining vernacular photographs of the New York City sky, The New Sky employs destructive image compositing, compression and chance to generate interference ‘clouds’ which appear to seamlessly emerge from, and bridge, the original images of the sky. Further bringing the work into permanent “in between” state, the digital image is transferred to 8x10 film, and the print is exposed, by hand, from this transparency. No two prints are identical.

Nexus, 2014 is part of an ongoing investigation of gesture and mark-making using computational photographic processes only. In this work, elements of nature are collaged into a technologically influenced state, in-situ, using the camera only. Vernacular images of the sky are doubled, inverted and combined, employing destructive image compositing and compression techniques, as well as chance, to draw with and remix natural elements until the desired composition is reached.
