I’ve officially started a new series called the “Quilt Project.” It began with “Ivan Memory,” and the second installation of this series is the rendering above. This is the second rendering using downtown Minneapolis as my subject, and I think this version a lot more subtle in it’s features, but more fun to look at.
Similar to the Lenz Project,” the “Quilt Project” has the ability to incorporate all of the aerial and satellite imagery I’ve acquired over the last few years. This technical aspect of this series is not as interesting as the “Star Of #2” series, but I feel these renderings are absolutely gorgeous. They are so simple, yet so visually engaging, they remind me of futuristic tapestries. These next renderings will be Tapestries of the Earth on a micro scale, that revolve around a center focus and are completely symmetrical. In fact, I think would be beautiful to have them printed out on to a cloth fabric and actually make them into rugs. I wonder if someone would purchase an “Earth Tapestry.” I’ll ask around…
Up next, the Netherlands Quilt!
