  • Moiré Project

    Line is the ubiquitous basis of art. It is simple in its generation and the root of hand made visual representation. Moire patterns are created from overlapping similar and mis-registered lines that create an optical illusion of a third, overriding pattern. The Lithographic process necessitates layering to create a multi-colour image on paper. The Lithographs in Linear Fragments, line is used as a metaphor for data and the lithographic medium serves as a vehicle by which to combine and layer data, creating a new message symbolized by the Moiré pattern that overrides the initial lines. In 2 of the Lithographs, found images are used to act as touchstones to direct the viewer to question what they know about the content of those images and the source of that knowledge.
