Leveraging the Archive

Primarily addressing questions of post-processing relative to photographic appearance expectations, this specific rendering is assembled from seventy-two selected individual archive images. Using smart object technology, a stacked mean averaging algorithm produces a complex layering of new meaning emerging from the image stream of consciousness. The final image is digitally printed in high resolution on vinyl at a size of 8 feet by 8 feet.

Decoding the importance of representational appearance, exploring variations within the category enriches experience. As the archive grows wider, it also deepens. Current working parameters affect the archive response, while simultaneously the review of realized images affects future captures. Engagement at a high level ensures personal progression. Although the expanding archive forces conceptual limits, there is satisfaction in continuing to explore subtle thematic variation. By looking carefully at a loose collection of image tracings, it is possible to realize a deeper significance within. This understanding then informs future image-capture field expeditions on an endless iterative feedback loop of creativity. Quantum mechanics postulates that comprehensive information about a physical system at one point in time determines its condition at any other time.
