While printing drafts of the photographs for "Domestic Mysteries IV", I noticed that they were composed of tiny dots reminiscent of Ben Day Dots. I had been looking for ways to release the energy inherent in the grid and this seemed to fit the bill. I photographed and re-photographed the drafts and then began a gentle manipulation – mostly cropping and enhancing the contrast – to further reveal the essential nature of the energy that I had managed to capture in the grid. Sometimes I added an element to the visual field – a line, a wedge, a block – whose solidity served to counter the effervescence of the dots. The result is a series of images that quietly animate and energize the space they occupy, with a presence that belies their modest size.
