Morton Feldman suspended repeating and subtly evolving and transforming sound patterns in a (musical) space that was generated in his 1981 composition for solo piano, Triadic Memories by having the pianist hold down the piano’s sustaining peddle throughout the duration of the performance of the piece. As the piano hammer strikes the notes, the sounds emerge from—become suspended in—and then are allowed to slowly decay, or de-compose back into silence. As this is happening, explains scholar-writer Clark Lunberry, the sounds become entropicaly interwoven and resonate together as an expansive tonal—chromatic—field, a tapestry of sound.
In my chromatic field photographs I repeat the same image multiple times in a grid format. I’m fascinated by the way an image, when it becomes transformed into a unified visual field, an image tapestry, manifests a new pictorial space--a space which amplifies, often quite viscerally and with surprising revelations, the essential visual characteristics of the single originating image.
