Photo Mutation

2012 - Ongoing

This series of 24 photographs were selected from 1,852 images. While the camera is known to distort reality, I wanted it to create a new one. By photographing a single color and rephotographing each successive image, a transformation took place – spawning new colors and forms that were completely unique from the original.

Inspiration for this work came from a dream where on the surface of the planet Venus, I found myself completely surrounded by color. There was no sky, ground, or horizon. It was endless pulsing color in all directions, coming together and forming visually overwhelming mixtures.
