THE WALLS OF PAREIDOLIA

The writing is on the wall. Pareidolia is the mind responding to patterns and interpreting them as familiar things.

 

Each wall I photograph is being reclaimed by the organisms growing there, the patterns they form suggesting their own landscape. To the wall photographs multiple images are overlaid, manipulated and blended.

 

The constructs represent an aesthetic vocabulary referencing humankind's disregard for our planet. My intention is to create surreal landscapes that belie their true origin while testifying to a real conflict.
