Animation/Collage from ink drawings on Denril.
My process begins with cartography. I plant things in my “urban” garden. I photograph the yard from many different angles each season, as I move mounds & transplant the terrain. I study & map portions of the yard, carefully examining vegetation & how light & shadow play. The maps I make generate a new topography each season. The roots of this project and many others have been developed over the course of the last 10 or so years. The first seed was planted in a previous project called “Dear Glenn Gould.” I obsessively listened to Gould’s “Goldberg Variations: The Well Tempered Clavier.” The drawings are a visual “counterpoint” They are layered visual information, producing an imagined time lapse view / code of a world.
