ACM SIGGRAPH's DIGITAL ARTS COMMUNITY (DAC)
How long does it take for memories, mediated perceptions, and the realities of moment come together to describe a place?
This series represents 40 years of wandering. The images began with pen and ink drawings of Ohio’s Glen Helen in 1968. Working from distant memories, the drawings were digitized and recombined in 2007. After a visit to Ohio, a portion of the drawings were subsequently layered and recombined with photographs. The works represent wandering from analogue to digital, from student artist to older artist, from black and white to color. As a body, the works speak to the aesthetic changes of our generation, and the conceptual and technical space between pen and ink, digital photography, and the layers of modern compositing.
The similarity in gesture and form between drawing and photograph reveal surprising perceptions that were not evident in the uncooked original drawings, nor in the untouched digital photographs.
