Visual Noise

Description

Visual Noise:

Humans seem to have an innate inclination to collect and organize objects which often results in scenes of chaotic confusion that in most cases have some underlying order or structure. My interest in this phenomenon has led me to produce photographs filled with so much detail and clutter that they can be described as visual noise. I have sought out scenes with a wealth of details that one can get lost in, where ones eyes cannot rest on some central object or image, but instead must search through the layers of information, perhaps settling upon some interesting detail to investigate further. I see these photographs as akin to large abstract paintings rather than documentary records of a set of objects. It is my hope that an audience will view them as intrinsic art objects rather than some sort of window through which to view some far away collection of objects.
