In the musical idiom the word staccato refers to an abrupt metronomic abbreviation. Corresponding with my interest in the built environment, I see meaning created thusly through intervening abridgments in social exchange. Following the tradition of the situationists, I see the potential for a "landscape" of meaning being forged in the chambers of convention. This project traces the curious relationship between utilitarian conventions in architecture and its paralogical counterpart in representation; the panoramic or "side scroll" image. The camera unflinchingly lays bare the present condition of this absence.
Staccato was created with 16 separate, 4 x 5 inch large format negatives.
