My work questions the importance of movement and time to our perceptions of the landscape, while simultaneously stressing the sublimity of that movement. By layering multiple source images and rearranging the color channels both vertically and horizontally, to create the single composite image, I question the fracturing of our memory just as a prism refracts white light into the component colors. Through redistributing the component colors of light I examine the relationships between them observing where they match up to create the expected image and where they fracture the consistency of expectation hoping to discover the refractive index of memory. Through the reassembling of the time color relationship we can discover the worlds variables.
For this series I investigate the cycling of the lunar calendar and how our perception of each phase combination changes across the light spectrum. Through the use of appropriated lunar calendars, depictions of the lunar phases and lunar events, such as the lunar eclipse this work questions our constructed relationship to the earths moon.
I examine the relationship between man and the environment, Lunar Calendar, like many of my other works, flips the perspective to create distortions in the relationship of color and movement. I question our own, arbitrary, perception of this celestial object. These relationships north is up / south is down, the back side of an object verses the front side, or true and false, are all constructions of our human experience and perspective. My work seeks to challenge these preconceptions.
