Dilapidated buildings, shaped landscapes, and redirected conduits. The layers of use and misuse are everywhere around us. Roadsides are scar tissue dumping ground evidence of old and new ideas piled on top of each other.
This work is photographic and printed on materials not originally designed for the use I now give it. Not that it is in use. The cupboard door is not opened. The plywood is not under the floor. But these pieces could someday make an excellent pallet, or cover a hole in the wall or floor.
Materials are mostly scavenged. Plywood has grain that I use as an integral part of the final image. The materials need to be prepped by cleaning and coated with polyurethane. I then paint the light sensitive emulsion on the surface. The image is then projected on to the surface with an enlarger or slide projector. Processing is done similar to standard prints. It may take extended time to get all of the image cover with the processing chemicals. A final coating of polyurethane covers the dry emulsion for protection and image depth.Urban, rural and woodland landscapes all hold evidence of roadside retrofit
