Paper Landscapes Series, 2004-2005
Lightjet digital photographs

With the "Paper Landscapes" series, sculptures are created out of crumpled, pierced and cut paper to evoke the Southern California landscape. From oilfields to freeway interchanges, cul-de-sacs to the Hollywood sign, the southern California landscape has been used as a space for speculation and as a projection screen for desire. By taking still photographs of the paper sculpture I wish to both deepen the sense of illusionary space and to return the work back to a piece of paper, back to a surface with the capacity to keep desire in suspense indefinitely.
