Part of my current project
These are a few crops from a series of very large images intended for print, sized approximately four feet by eight feet. Some time back, I found a means by which I could reduce the minutia in an image while retaining the overarching message. This particular set attempts to convey an observation I’ve made about individuality relating to a greater whole.
The first image of each set is the “Big Picture” image. This particular view represents the grand macro view of ones perspective where individuality is lost and the whole is what is observed.
The second image of each set is the “Intermediate” image. This particular view represents a “Mid Way” view of ones perspective where both individuality, and a greater world view, are both lost. From here, neither the details of the individuals nor the meaning of the whole are readily apparent.
The third image of each set is the “Micro” image. This particular view represents a “Sample” view of ones perspective where individuality is emphasized. From here the meaning of the whole is lost. A narrow cross-section of the entire story is visible, yet fine details that compose the individual components of the whole are absent. The perspective at this level is superficial, no real emphasis is made on the finer points of individuality.
