Seismic Line // Moiré

These pieces highlight themes of labor, scale, and impossible landscapes. Both of the images these works are based upon exist by way of patterns of interference: the first of sound and the second of light. "Seismic Line" materializes a cross-section of the earth through seismic reflection in the Gulf of Mexico. "Moiré" materializes the pattern formed through two interfering grids of fabric. Commanding in size, both works have a delicate and fragile appearance when approached. "Seismic Line" describes a depth of 11,000 feet below the ocean floor, while "Moiré" magnifies the pattern it represents by over ten times.
