Films

 In this series, the positive Polaroid images were scanned, enlarged and printed onto large sheets of mylar. The forms that arise are incidental, the result of chance and choice, at times possessing elements expressive of the places they fleetingly captured or they may be entirely non-referential, evoking anatomies and metaphysical topographies.
