1. This is the third book (in this case box of prints) of an on going series of handmade artists books that I have been and am currently working. The main focus of this series of books is the representation of visceral/ tangible light. Light Abstractions started as the documentation of an instillation in which a generative video was projected through multiple scrims in an order to create a truly unique, all encompassing visual and sonic experience. Through the documentation of the instillation many photos where taken but due to the uniqueness of the visuals them self the results were less then adequate in representing the experience felt within the gallery space. Where as the artist book Spectrum looked to explore the uncovered essence of the light captured by the camera, Light abstractions used the available information to create stencils from the abstract forms created by the light of the projections. Using spray paint these abstracted forms were transferred to the screen material that was used to display the original visuals bringing the project full circle.

  2. This is the second book of an on going series of handmade artists books that I have been and am currently working. The main focus of this series of books is the representation of visceral light. Spectrum started as the documentation of an instillation in which a generative video was projected through multiple scrims in an order to create a truly unique, all encompassing visual and sonic experience. Through the documentation of the instillation many photos where taken but due to the uniqueness of the visuals them self the results were less then adequate in representing the experience felt within the gallery space. However through using digital techniques that are analogous with traditional dark room practices an explosion of color, movement and form was uncovered. These uncovered images are what make up the content of spectrum.

  3. This is the first of an on going series of handmade artists books that I have been and am currently working. The main focus of this series of books is the representation of visceral light. Perforative Light started as a documentation of a performative piece in which tiny lcd flashlights were used in conjunction with a few custom programs to trigger sounds. In essence the light source become an instrument. The light source also became a type bush which was used to create the images in this book.
