I was in Chicago in mid-August 2003, before going to New Mexico. Riding the El with a friend, I took several photos of the trains and platforms, and conceived the collage below. It wasn't till after I got back from New Mexico that I was able to assemble it, however; doing so changed my perspective, and I have found myself creating several other matrix collages since. One of them is a collage of Santa Fe images; another was created by snapping photos out the truck window while driving around St. Paul, MN.

I have not yet decided if this is a series of individual pieces, or a whole new style of making art. Each piece is constructed on a grid in Photoshop, arranged sequentially or intuitively; choice of materials is always relevant in constructing a collage. The finished pieces are all quite large when printed on archival photo paper.

Meanwhile, more pieces in this series will be added here as they are made.
