Early Digital Works
Much of this work explores motivation,
aesthetic and process in the new digital studio. I have evolved from early
photo collage/montage work with original photographic images to digitaly
created images which use the scanner as capture device.
By using the lense of the
scanner to experiment with 3-D subjects, I have found that the artifacts created
by this process can be carved and altered to create moods and lend emotion
to otherwise lifeless objects
A series of images inspired by a walk along Loman Beach in Seattle. Taking organic elements and sculpting them with direct scans to produce a connection between input, emotion and process.
Common objects of personal relivance become more than their utilitarian shell when transformed through the alchemy of the digital process.
Images of the relationships in my life represented by their hands. I asked people to "perform" for me in a box made to sit on top of my scanner for this 1997 project.
After a couple visits to New York City in the late 90's, I came away with an intense sense of the energy of the city and the scale of it's buildings and myths.
