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.
