Three colors are extracted from a digital photograph. The colors are used to construct a pigment print made up of thin vertical lines in a repeating pattern. The print is placed behind a 1/4″ thick piece of architectural glass with a ceramic-frit line pattern on the front. Due to the very precise relationship between the lines in the print and the line pattern of the glass, the works appear to change color as the viewer moves relative to the piece. The location of the original photograph and the source of the colors are indicated in small text along the bottom of the print.
Though the panels themselves are static, the movement of the viewer initiates a dynamic, animated effect. Without movement they are fields of color. With movement, time and space are activated to create a more complex engagement.
