Scatter Plots: Bear Creek Park (2008)
digital ink-jet print / 30" x 30"
Much of my work emerges from simultaneous enchantment with and concern for the increasing presence of the screen and myriad forms of digital mediation in my daily life experiences. In Scatter Plots I stage the pixel—the smallest unit constructing the digital image—as both medium and metaphor. Various levels of pixelation create moments of rupture and enter into dialogue with the “nature” of digital photography as pixels on a grid, the capacity of the human mind to impute missing data, the image as a façade that signifies our desire, and the ephemeral experience of nature.
