"I think of my work as a kind of pleasurable terror; a meditation on the sublime turbulence of the California landscape distilled within the two dimensional space of a photographic print. My photographs of California's fault lines are matched with seismic data, which I physically carve into the surface of the prints. The resulting images become at once still and active, indexical and impressionistic, beautiful yet unnerving in their implications.
