Drawing from test patterns used in video media, this project replicates the aesthetic of LCD monitors using multicolored grids. Moiré patterns emerge from the network of millions of layered lines, which resemble the distortions that are common in screen-based media. I’m interested in the process of translating imagery through various distributions methods; the process of printing a digital-born image to paper in itself creates a type of filter and alters the data encapsulated in the form. By highlighting and exaggerating deformity, this work emphasizes the role that technology plays in creating aesthetic sensibilities and serves as a reminder that all images include some type of interference. The images represented here are a compilation of various steps in the process of experimenting with lines drawn in Photoshop, presented in a vertical scrolling progression.
