           The technique to study and measure the movement of the stars once involved a pool of water in which the observer could chart the activity of the sky reflected on the surface, a beautiful but somewhat inexact science. 

“Stars in a Pool”

 

This group of prints, informed by contemporary mathematics, begins with a very simple L-system, a square described by L-shapes.

 

 

The patterns created are various states of “surface” events, disturbing the water in that virtual pool to manipulate the information, the L-system, as an object in that pool.  This suite of six images is screen printed on various archival papers in an edition of ten.

 

 

 


 

 

 

Desert Pavement: A geologist's term to describe a beautiful mosaic of stone, covering certain desert floors. It is made by the elements scrubbing the surface of the desert for thousands of years,  removing all that is small enough to be carried or blown away. What remains are stones of a reasonably uniform size  packed rather closely together, finally resembling a carpet of small dark stones.
