Opening Reception

Exhibition: Oct 9 – Nov 30, 2014
From the fruition of life to this very instant, time has transformed our universe, but has maintained consistent in its governing life’s cycle. Time connects us all to the origins of civilization, seen in primitive urges that still exist in human instinct, and has lead society to the technological age in which we currently reside.

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.
