Time Book
One Star Press, 2009
Timebook collects black and white photographs taken of a road or runway while speeding along overhead. The gravelly texture of the ground becomes the canvas for a vast painting consisting of white directional markings and snaking black lines made by filling cracks with tar. The two elements intersect and overlap to form a network of lines approachable only through these fragmented images captured while in motion. To view details and download pdf, go HERE.
