“Above & Beyond”
Kalee Appleton’s series is inspired by time and time’s tendency to both transform and preserve.
By first deconstructing appropriated NASA satellite imagery by corrupting the digital code of these digital files, representations of the earth are broken into geometric shapes. The code of these shapes is then combined with the hex code of slices of digital landscape photography in order to reveal the hierarchal breakdown of Earth’s structures.
This collaging of digital code references the recent development and influx of technology, while creating a conversation with shapes that are both primitive and futuristic, allowing the past and future to come together as one.
