I remember the impact that Naoya Hatakeyama's Blast series [link] had on me when I saw it at his retrospective at the San Francisco MoMA back in 2012 [link]. The wonder of seeing something that before the human eye could not really see, much like the ground breaking technology created by MIT Scientist Harold Edgerton and the stunning interactions he was able to capture [link] There was some pretty wild weather down along the coast over the past week and wanted to see that same beauty in the stillness of the energy of the storm surge.

Drawing on Thomas Ruff's JPEGS series [link] and Fred Cray's Movies series [link]. in the digital age looking at the noise to signal ratio and the glitches that make up the greys. more than anything I just like how randomness can lead to something beautiful. Images taken from the 2014 Tour de France TV coverage with the digital signal for whatever reason dropping out, to varying degrees. I guess with photography, the photographer is in complete control of everything that goes into the final image. I've never been a fan of been in complete control of something let randomness intervene.

Graphical abstractions of sandstone rock formations located at flat rock in the Northern Grampian's Victoria, Australia.  I love this small rock formation to have so many different shapes within one place created from so many layers of compressed sand over a millennium

My interest in graphical abstraction came from my interest in comics as a kid and coming across the work of Jeffery Smart [link], Roy Lichtenstein [link] and Piet Mondrian [link] I like the idea of a one to one relationship a two dimensional medium representing effectively a two dimensional subject.
