"Yes, the only place on earth where all places are -- seen from every angle, each standing clear, without any confusion or blending." Carlos Argentino Daneri , from The Aleph, by Jorge Luis Borges This summer was spent at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, at remote Annaghmakerrig Lake, in Ireland. I created a new series of work consisting of on-site observations of the natural world: rampant forests, the eternally cycling lives of myriad small creatures, the rhythms of the small geographies that make up the texture of rural Monaghan County. I made photographs every day and wove these images into surface maps: digital 2D images wrapped around three-dimensional forms. I inserted interference patterns and added qualities of light and transparency. Gradually the shapes and patterns became codified in what I call the Aleph series. They are crystalline distillations, facets of the observed world. All self-contained, encapsulated into concise visual memory.
