In this series of photographs, I remade the contours of a western suburban skate park into images that straddle the line between the ordinary and the undefined. To me certain of the images appear organic, but also pretty alien. The shots are not composites and were taken in early morning and late afternoon sunshine.
These are photographs of shapes with content but without obvious form. I wasn’t aiming for any specific intellectual content. I suppose it’s really about having to consider what we each bring to decoding something novel.
Using certain skate park images, I stitched replicas together to form something completely different but clearly related to the original images. The results are a somewhat archeological experience, like interpolating a vase from its fragments.
