"These images and accompanying patterns emerged from a visual research project on the history of camouflage patterns. I am interested in the way that landscape has been represented, abstracted and systematized via camouflage patterns (military, for hunters and fisherman) in such a way as to be able to allow one to dissolve right back into that landscape. Simultaneously, I am watching the city where I have lived for six years, Philadelphia, PA, go through a rapid transformation and gentrification; before this, I saw even more extreme metamorphoses in New York and San Francisco, where I also lived. Quick-built luxury lofts insinuate themselves into longstanding vacancy. Neon house-wraps and Tyvek sheeting billow in the breeze, heralding the deletion of decay. My photographs and photo-based camouflage patterns conflate the language of nature camouflage with urban morphology; and seek to pin, track, alter and riff on the quick and slippery language of development that curtains our experience of our landscape.
