The Topographical Project:
Soon we will inhabit Mars and use its water for oxygen and fuel. One of the most famous images from Mars is the photo “Face on Mars” . This photo of a Martian mountain looks like a human face but after a 3D scan of the surface it turns out to be just a mountain formed by erosion.
Like the face on Mars, consider the paintings as topographical views of 2D maps. The 2D maps, in this case, are previously painted timelines of random information. These were scanned and then cut 3D using a CNC router. I then repainted them like the original.
Like the Face on Mars we can see a more truer since of those timeline moments as complex locations we all share or simply enjoy the abstracted aesthetic result of the random.
