Crystal Grid
2020 – (ongoing)

photocollage, C-prints on aluminium composite, epoxy resin,
each 47.5 × 47.5 cm 

A series of photocollages bring fragments of plants photographed in different botanical gardens of the world onto a single surface. The collage pattern for each piece is a variation of a grid that is based on the roof structure of the central transept of the Crystal Palace. The analogue production process of the work both emphasises as well as obscures photography’s indexical relationship to the places where the photos were taken. The work is presented in sets of three images that all contain fragments from each other that have been scrambled by the grid. The titles indicate the locations of the photographs.
