RASTROS [Reinterpreting Photographs]
Rastros is a reinterpretation of 553 photographs taken in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala in June of 2008. Each photograph is rephrased and re-interpreted through an elemental language of data weaving. Colors, symbols, and patterns signify context, content, subject, and environment. Showing process within language and layering, materializing data through signs and patterning resulting in intricate glyphs, equally expressive as the original photographs. This new language structure becomes similarly habitual as the crafts of weaving and photography. Story-telling the origins and content of the image, each glyph is then burnt onto light sensitive paper, returning the image to its original language of light.
The result is 553 interpretive glyphs, a series of posters, and process books.
