    About The Work

    Holes. Time warps. Tesseracts. Places you can’t find on a map because they are to come, or will have been. Places where the sound environment is cyclical and rhythmic. Machines, like oil derricks, creak as they move up and down. Sucking up the oil, which is hidden in the tubes, lines, and tanks of the oil field. At sea, the drift of oil down through the photosynthetic layer, down to the benthic layer where the crustacea live, and the sightless fish. In this photomontage, I’m imagining what comes up from the depths, as oceans rise in response to greenhouse gas concentrations. Is it the discarded red shoes I wore to prom? What about the energy coming from geothermal production, in this image, at the edge of the Salton Sea?

    From the 'Tesserae of Venus' (2009-2011) imagining the saturated atmospheres of greenhouse gasses and climate change...this series is composed of photographs shot at energy-producing remote sites in California.
