Orphan Transpositions (2016-)
This series uses photographic reproductions of iconic, but orphaned works - i.e. works are out of copyright. Photographic reproductions fall into a grey area regarding intellectual property, reproductions of paintings are often deemed to have "no expressive content", therefore the rights staying with the originator, or public domain. This particular series, delves into the works of Yosemite by Albert Bierstadt, which make up part of the relationship to painting, photography and desktop backgrounds.
The sections of the paintings are laser-engraved onto mirrored acrylic, which spin in space. Visually, over time, the works go from being chunks of plastic, to mirrors to image depending on the rotation of the motor from which they hand, and the viewer's proximity to the works.
