All of my site work is an intervention through mark-making of some kind. In this case it is a vandalisation of pixels. My interactions with place also relate to progressions of marking from petroglyphs and cave paintings to pastoralists like John Constable, city maps, calligraphy traditions, Mexican pop and folk art, graffiti, and color saturated postcards.
This series re-presents three canyons in Guanajuato State, Mexico, frequented over a period of five months. These canyon lands encompass biosphere reserves, eco-tourism sites, ranches, and the variety of existing tags shown here.
While the tags themselves may immediately provoke positive or negative reactions depending on preferences for particular urban/rural aesthetics or vibrant/muted color pallets, I'm more interested in their relationship to other kinds of marking less noticed to an acclimated eye, like agricultural practices, or photography itself, that physically alter or conceptually create landscapes at different scales.
