untitled diptych, originally uploaded by boxspring.

I did this when I graduated college. The portrait is a combination of me and a portrait of my father in the navy taken from an old print plate, photocopied and made into a transparency, sandwiched in slide form and projected onto wood. The second half is Leonardo da Vinci's last supper, taken from a slide, also projected on wood and re-photographed.

For some reason I do not remember if the portrait was on the left or the right. It has been in hiding for the past few years and was dismantled.

This would be the beginning of my projection photographs, or at least the first of the printed photographs that I have done since. I was projecting imagery onto sculptures and installations at the time, toying with presentation. Unfortunately I do not have any examples of the installations; I only had limited time to put stuff up at school and did not have time to photograph the spaces.

One of the more interesting pieces was an uncovered twin box spring, only the wood, springs and burlap remained, standing up tall with projected slide imagery on it. From the front it was a portrait, the rear created a mosaic, as well as the wall behind.

Most of my work, be it photo or sculpture, is based on recombination. I tend to put things together to make something new, create a new meaning. I have been doing this in my paintings, in the use of collaged materials, as well as the sculptures, wood and books. I hope to go back to the installation aspect some day, when I have sufficient room to do so.
