Aerial Circuitry is a series of 25 emulsion prints on copper plate – an accumulation of aerial photographs taken from my window seat on 19 flights during the last 27 months. Each photograph captures human-made patterns upon the earth’s surface synthesized with microchip circuit patterns from a radio frequency transmitter. These works are each 12x12″ in size (with mat & frame) and available for $400 at Gebert Contemporary, The Darkroom & group exhibit at Practical Art. Below are some quick progress shots during framing – check back for image updates.
The irony of a pandemic is that it gives people personal time and space for deep reflection. I work in a wide variety of materials, so reflection is an important way for me to connect past, present and future dots within my work. In this case, looking back at the evolution of my print process(es) on copper and aluminum pieces since 2013 (images below) is a clear reminder of just how much trial, exploration and experimentation have transpired to create this new series.
