Utopia (2009)

12" x 60"

Found wall calendars, modified

A geometric collage made from abandoned “schwag” promotional calendars. The proliferation of stock photography has diminished the impact of landscape photography, sucking the power out of once-beautiful images. The ubiquity of utopian representations has ironically made them near-invisible to the modern viewer. In this arrangement, each image is symmetrically fragmented and invites the viewer to reconstruct it through geometric clockwise eye movement. This viewing game suggests a reconsideration of the image and the absurd constructed nature of its original form.
