In 2008, I began photographing buildings, in particular modern hi-rises, as source material for digital collage and paintings. Using Adobe® Photoshop® I cut sections of these buildings and transform them to identical dimensions. Once transformed, I paste these sections within a larger grid to create a new ‘modular’ hi-rise. The resulting image resembles its source, but is simplified as it is composed of only similar sections, which are often repeated, and laid on a grid void of perspective. I’ve created the following modular work from one of my recent photos of parking garages in Des Moines.
