Process Drawings

A lot of experimentation, trial and error, is involved in my work.  I try something out - in software, hardware, physical materials - and see what behaviours emerge.  Often the accidents I can harness them to take the work in a different direction. 


These miniature electro-luminescent images are working documentation of this process: high-level schematics, calculations, sketches for problem solving and “still life” scans of the raw components.  The resulting total is not directly functional, but is a kind of “inverted momento mori” - a reminder of origins.
