Some Small Groups 1974-2009
25 - 20"x16" white framed prints each 1"x1" square

This project consists of an infinite number of 1" square photographic prints culled from 35 years of personally captured archived photographs. They are grouped in various categories that mutate according to whim, time of day, wind speed, solstice orientation and flights of fancy.
Some Small Groups was initially launched in 2000. It is a modular piece designed for perpetual rearrangement in an intimate domestic space.  Each image is on the verge of not quite being able to be completely discerned. There are currently 250 images of which the categories: Bush, Wheel, Human, Light, Fin, Path, Animal, Rain, Sky, Tree, Water, Nipple, Horizon & Topiary have been selected for inclusion in this first ever public viewing of these formally secret archives.

Disused gas fireplace, portable LCD video player, landscapes

A contemporary approach to the contemplative disciplines, a fascination with fire and flying monks converge in an examination of place, habit and aspiration.
