Ark, 2018

My most recent body of photo-based work titled "Industry Unraveled” draws attention to both current practices of online commerce and the history of manufacturing in the Rust Belt. The work intertwines images that represent regional history, architecture and location with processes derived from the affordable immediacy of Walmart and web-based commerce.


The photographs that I’ve taken in Northeast Ohio and other Rust Belt locations, are uploaded to Walmart’s website and processed into digitally printed/woven versions of my images. I selectively pull threads from the woven image combined with over-dying, bleaching and manual collage using a sewing machine. The combination of these hand-worked processes creates a visual impression that the image is dematerializing, fading away, and unraveling into a pile of disconnected threads cascading towards the floor.
