Drawing on a broad tradition of abstract photography my approach is to [un]learn the distinction between different modes of representation such as the three-dimensional, the pictorial, the virtual and the symbolic.
"faulty lines" is a body of work shot between 2004 and 2008. The images selected attempt to define a two-dimensional approach of a 3D built ‘reality’. It suggests a work of transformation, the possibility that through ceaseless unearthing of what we already know (our surroundings) we may find other ways of reading things (our meanings).
