Image awaits your att.  Hand stenciled acrylic paint on paper. 2018. 10 x 10


Image awaits your attn explores the role of the visual in constructing our understanding of the world, including things we have never laid eyes upon, yet which we “know" exist. 

 
The QR code is many things, a digitally generated abstract shape and a semaphoric container. It has a solid materiality - the orange iron oxide paint stenciled onto paper belie its digital origins. It holds a latent image that our eyes cannot read. Like a conjurer’s house of cards, suspended in vaporous semi-existence, the QR code shimmers in the flickering lights of ontology, epistemology and semantics. If the QR code is read," the latent image is cast into our line of sight onto a hand-held digital screen, a reflection in a dark mirror. If the QR code remains "un-read,” the imagination sparks as we consider the possibilities that arise through remaining unseen. It’s an object that eludes us.
