Inner Architectures
2003-present

For this series I photograph buildings and spaces, scan the negatives to make digital files, then link discrete segments of space into larger maze-like expanses. The process is somewhat like a set designer, borrowing from the syntax of familiar architectural styles and surfaces to construct strange contained worlds. To make my collages I select portions with walls, doors or columns that fit together believably. The mind initially apprehends a united, seamless space, but the joints between frames are still discernable.
