Eye of the Observer

Eye of the Observer is a currently on-going project undertaken involving a scanner, glass, light, stones, and "stuff."  "Painting light" is at the core of traditional painting, but this is problematic and paradoxical.  Paint can only act as mediator between light and the eye; objects can only reflect or absorb light.  Although using a scanner seems to (and in a way does) add another mediator into the equation, the result of a scan is a product created by the source of light and the objects that reflect and absorb it rather than something (pigment and adhesive) attempting to mimic the source of light and the objects which light "hits."
