This body of work was heavily inspired by a black out poem I created. Using slit scanning methods, I went outside and explored symbols I found in my environment that could relate directly to my poem. After I digitally manipulated my photos, I transferred the images to sheets of aluminum. Referring to the environment I was in, I gathered driftwood from Lake Erie and suspended my images from them. The title of this body of work, Permanent, comes directly from a line in the poem and is a nod towards my attempt to freeze these moments in time and space.

Poem:

Deer appeared at night,
fires lit up the heavens,
wolves howled despite their hardships and isolation.

Permanent.
They are running from the old trail,
from the man who persevered and dreamed of an eventual passage way from the winter.
But the blazing of felled trees observed the rough permanent road.

Please let me know what you think about this or if you have any questions on how I did anything!

It is a little difficult to see them. Could you somehow please enlarge your photo?
Or just take one and enlarge it?

Thank you for enlarging. Quite lovely. This is another artist that uses aluminum for photo transfer. Her name is Karen Cooper. She has an art gallery in Vancouver on Granville Island. Thought you might like to see her work: http://karencoopergallery.com

I'm glad you like that one. Also, I realized I uploaded one of the same images twice... oops.
