This series explores the evolution of the work I produced during my first year at Ryerson. Most of the images in the series were created by working within the idea that the mechanics in a camera can operate as reductive and augmentative synthesizers. Other images lean towards the interaction between physical materials and photography. Throughout my year at Ryerson I became interested in the dot arrays that are printed on the windows of the IMA [School of Image Arts] building. I noticed that these dot fields have various functions on their own and when interacting with images; they work as lenses, conductors of retinal afterimages, and geometric grids. The dot fields are something I can imagine revisiting later in my academic career at Ryerson.
