“The process starts with the digitization of black and white negatives taken by my father in the 1950s. Images are imported into Photoshop and merged with digital color photographs I have taken, for extreme close-ups of Buddhist architecture, Incan carvings, treks in the Himalayas, and peeling paint on Cuban walls. Using different algorithmic systems, I begin the reiterative steps to generate aesthetically balanced and abstract images, working through many different solutions for the series, for example 60 variations, from which the most appealing and effective, non-symmetrical images were selected. Additionally, composited images are infused with color from the visible electromagnetic spectrum and printed on aluminum using a dye-sublimation process. The title references the shape and 1:2 ratio of each piece, which is based on a square root 4 rectangle. This proportion has a digital and binary code relationship. The pieces marry the ideas of analogue and digital, handmade and algorithm, and old and new.” – Gary Mesa-Gaido, Morehead, KY
