Original image for Quarry 9: Venice, California 1.

This group of Quarry works is based on photographs I took in October, 2007, in Venice, California, showing a house under construction near a canal. So far I have used only one image; more are to come. To construct each of the "Grids," a single image is divided into between 4 and 169 parts, and these parts are then rearranged using random processes.

My use of randomness here is different than in much other art. It is my hope that because of the choice of images and the ways the parts are rearranged and presented, each work creates a kind of opening-out effect, suggesting to the viewer that seeing, and the seeing of a single image, offer a nearly infinite diversity of possibilities. More can be found on the Quarries main page and in my Artist's Statement.

          

The works now titled Remade were titled Figmented-G before November 23, 2010. Quarry 9: Venice, California 1, Remade 9.1 was Quarry 9: Venice, California 1, Figmented-G 9.1.
