    About The Work

    This gelatin silver print is part of the project 'Double Blind Studies' (2012-). The first double blind studies in the 2012 series were based on drawing inspired by sea life witnessed aboard a marine research vessel in the Gulf of Mexico during the Deep Horizon oil spill in 2010. These new images (2023) are constructed from photographs of lost paintings and drawings—lost in the sense of having been destroyed in the process of their making, and found in new configurations of remixing the photos.

    Following the scientific 'double blind study', I put drawings into the testing space of photography. A double negative, a bilateral symmetry, a photogram-like effect reveal something the drawing was blind to before it was transformed into a print. The site of drawing is like a lab slide under a microscope, or the forensics of pinned specimens on a wall. If the procedure is modernist—a search for essence, the results are speculative. Just the facts yield primitive science. The air is dense like chalk dust on a blackboard. An approach to life.
