Entry Description: DECOMPOSED explores the systems and boundaries between binaries – image/text, conscious/unconscious, corporeal/spiritual – and focuses on the points at which these constructs converge, invert and decompose.
These primarily lens-based images were crafted via various techniques: masking, piercing, sewing, drawing, digital imaging, and printed in multiple layers. The original works vary in size, medium and technique. The final pieces were then reproduced, Glicée printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag and also included in a handmade, limited edition 7 x 7 inch, 50 plate artist book.
