‘9 years old (1990)’ is the first piece in a 2 part series. This series explores publications that were dear to me in my childhood. National Geographic Magazine was very important to me during that time and actually it still is. I revisited the issues of 1990 and reinterpreted them into this infinite pattern collage.

Topography, is shaped by what is beneath it, around it, and the pressures of them, much like our conscious. Through the treatment and placing of paper, I used the ‘Impressions’ plate to make an impression on it. My car the vehicle of my movement through landscape, was used to directly apply pressure onto this paper leaving behind the physical impression of the plate.

 

Each print is the result of 2 hours of preparation, 24 hours of pressure and 24 hours of drying.

Reflections of geography through my travels. When energy passes through the physical plane it leaves behind visible evidence. Physically this happens through time and movements in mass. With this piece I passed a router over the surface to create strokes that are representative of these changes. Leaving behind an impression of my conscious.

 

Inspired by my relocation from Miami to Los Angeles.

Traces October 28, 2015

 Repetition in patterns fueled by energy flowing through our bodies cause an impact on the physical world. One step removed one can start to see the traces left of our presence. Whether harmful or positive to oneself or the environment, the impact is there. Video is originally 49min long and has been edited down to 2min 1sec.
