Randall Park Mall, 2016

My most recent photo-based project, industry unraveled, explores the decline of industry in the Rust Belt and the subsequent dominance of Walmart culture and web-based commerce. The photographs that I’ve taken in Northeast Ohio are uploaded to Walmart’s website where my images are produced as digitally woven photographs. I subsequently deconstruct the photographic weavings by selectively pulling threads from the image. Removing threads from the photo-weaving creates a visual impression that the image is dematerializing and slipping away into a pile of disconnected threads that are cascading towards the floor.
