ANIMAL TIME (2005)
The overarching title for all of this work and the exhibition I had at REDUX is Animal Time. In my mind I had the idea of photographing or interacting with space embedded in an animalistic experience of time--something slower, maybe even with no aspect of time whatsoever since animals just Be--there is no past or future.
The shorter Camo series leads into the Animal Time series and exhibition. At the time I was making the camo' work, I named Camouflage the pattern of the millenium for it's use in warfare (desert camo--some of which looks very digital) and it's use in blending the human in with nature--an issue of grave importance then and now. Blood Shred is a transitional image where the idea of shredding something man-made up enough will force it to blend in with nature if only in a metaphorical sense.
