Modern digital images may appear to be recreations of reality, but they are actually mosaics of millions of tiny blocks, or pixels, of color. Normally, these blocks are too small for one’s eyes to register, but when an image is reduced to 10,000 pixels, each block is visible. This resolution is small enough to see each pixel, but large enough to discern the subject matter. When you can see each individual block of color in an image, a more honest exchange is happening between the photograph and the viewer. I chose the subject matter of modern architecture for this series, because the geometric forms mirror the shape of the square pixels. The hard, minimalist style of modern architecture survives and is even enhanced by the pixilation of these images.
