“Off The Grid”

“Off The Grid” is a series of light-hearted vignettes created from individual photographs of debris collected from the lake shore of Eagle Mountain Lake.

From these photographs, I built digital collages, or “Grids”, to include each item of debris as it was found or rephotographed in the studio. Eventually, I began to explore other representations of my material. Thus, individual items fell “Off the Grid” into vignettes. Debris over time, combined with sun, wind and wave breaks apart into interesting bits of color, sometimes recognizable, sometimes not.  Without being overly obvious, the viewer can be lead to consider the impact of bottles and other debris in our recreational areas.
