Every Image

In the Every Image series,  hundreds of images from a single online news source are composited into a single abstract image that contains all the visual “news of the day.”  On the one hand, these abstract images call attention to the glut of electronic images in our daily lives and our inability to respond to them meaningfully.  On the other hand, they embrace the task of archiving every aspect of human experience, including war, politics, disaster, celebrity culture, religion, crime, sports, food, real estate, cars and pets.  The images contain traces of their indexical origins, including human figures, objects and text, but they are also seductively intangible and contemplative.  In this way, they transcend the mundane and the horrible to suggest medieval triptychs, color field paintings, or other spiritual impulses in art.
