LATTICIAL INTERFERENCE ARTIST STATEMENT
Latticial Interference is a photographic series that conveys the optical distortion created by latticial patterns and their shadows. In choosing a focus, I bend the lattice and it’s shadows to create new in-camera waveforms. The shadow behind the waveform interferes with the light shining on the lattice itself. Through bending the forms with the focus, the light and the shadows expand and contract creating positive and negative lattice forms. When they interfere with each other, the negative space of the shadow constructs the light in the foreground to create new unique forms. The detail of these intertwined forms work with their bold color and stark tone to overwhelm the spectator’s senses. This phenomenological experience is designed both to excite and exhaust the spectator’s senses. Thus, the photograph no longer serves as an artifact of the past captured but activates a new unique sensory experience for the viewer.
