*Inspired by the Charles and Ray Eames film "Powers of Ten",
all of the images in this series, which I consider to be one artwork,
are each a distinct view within one shared world. Each drawing can be
described as a still frame of an animated journey through 10 primary
floating layers, with two subsequent background layers visible in each
frame. As each framing represents a point of perspective along a line
traveled, the compositions transform through consistent scaling and
linear motion along the axis of the viewer's gaze. *

*This process is an
experiment in layering which defies classical ideas of perspective and
depth even while portraying patently flat surfaces. A disorienting
inversion of nearness and distance have the confounding result of
allowing background objects to grow proportionally with their distance,
much like the disorienting experience of looking through a magnifying
glass while moving it away from an object. This series is a personal
response to the eponymous Charles and Ray Eames film, which portrays an
inspiring but much more scientific exploration of the effects of
distance and scale on our visual environment.*

*All works were created in 2012.*

*Letterpress prints printed by Smokeproof Press.*
