Once Ocean (2015 – 2017) represents the first project in which I utilized diagnostic technology that detects electrical activity within the body, and changes in that activity. Specifically, I began to focus on the wave and grid patterns created by electrocardiogram (EKG), electroencephalogram (EEG) and functional MRI (fMRI) testing. I began to work with images of these graphs and charts, digitally blending them with my photographs of the natural world.
These photographs of the environment are captured with a digital camera. The diagnostic imagery represents printed medical testing which I changed to a digital format. Each image is printed as an archival pigment print and signed by the artist en verso.

In addition to photographs on paper, many of these images are fabricated as large-scale computerized jacquard loom woven cotton tapestries.
