“LandScans of Landscapes of Unnatural and Natural Beauty”
Are images captured by a hand held scanner, an instrument that has become an extension of myself so natural and familiar is the process. Just as one would extend a hand to engage with the rich textures of a new environment, I too respond instinctively to new stimuli by touching however in this case scanning, moving over vastly different surfaces, effortlessly to record this engagement, even staggered movements or my digital dirt are permanently stored as textural memories of the engagement of place.
Factors both intentional and unintentional influenced the moment of capture, discreet segments of place, points in time samples of the surrounding environment which later revealed layered records of the impact of occupation, motion and time. Every interaction leaves its mark including my own.
