The works below are smaller in scope and don't belong to any larger projects or series at the time of posting, and can be viewed as they rest.
Silence: One and Silence: Two, 2020
Throughout the first half of 2020 I tired to remain quiet about the numerous disasters that were plaguing society. Slowly, that silence began to eat away at me as an individual. Throughout Silence: One, and Silence: Two I tried to capture how silence can eat away at a person. The images in Silence: One were created by manipulating a sheet of paper as I scanned it. The images in Silence: Two were created by crumpling and unfolding a sheet of paper multiple times, scanning it each time I uncrumpled it.
Nuclear Decay, 2019
This is a series of images based on the famous photograph "Mushroom Cloud Over Nagasaki" by Lieutenant Charles Levy, taken August 9, 1945. The base image (immediately below) is my personal printout of the original photograph. While in Sanibel, Florida (November 2019) I made six copies of this image on cheap card stock, using a low quality printer, intending to use them for another project. However, once I retrieved the copies, I discovered that the paper had not soaked up the ink. With a paper towel I began to wipe away the excess ink, spending more time and pressure on each subsequent image, causing each to be more muddied and unrecognizable than the last.
