base series

photographs reduced to simple line outlines and layered together

when using source images from the nerve series of blurred photographs
the final composite looks like a microscopic section of brain cells,
seemingly chaotic connections between nodes
patterns from the macro- have been transformed into patterns at the micro,
continually applying edge-detection to the composite forces the pattern into a closed loop
an almost uniform field of noise from which there is no release…
tending towards a monochrome in grey

perhaps this is where the truth of the nerve images lies, in grey blankness mist

our nature is defined in repetition, schemes built by addition
our thoughts are pinpoints of feeling but at the edge
it seems as though everything suddenly becomes blurred and indistinct
out of reach
