Artist Statement:


    The Northern Garden is an experiential construct far removed from our seasonless electronic existence. The physicality of gardening stands in stark contrast to the sleek containment of on-line navigation. In this series, The Twice Constructed Garden, human intercession determines the intersection of the natural and the technological. The insertion of personal intention through the reordering of experience occurs in both physical and digital space. Through use of a decidedly low-tech pinhole camera, image sources are registered from these places which are human ordered, nature produced. Once acquired, these fragments are reconvened and mediated through digital intervention. Each image serves as a channel for the exploration of expectation and recognition. The images in this series have their sources in photographs made with a pinhole camera. Those sources then have been digitally selected and manipulated on computer and published via a dye-sublimation printer.
