Ferris Journeys is an extension of the series Persistence of Vision, a suite of images
comprised of digital photographs created as a series of progressive images referencing
the façade of motion as in film or video--by a method of merging multiple photographic
layers into a solitary image. Notwithstanding the product of a single, static picture,
the resulting image implies movement through physical space over extended time as
generally accepted photographically. The cumulative effect--implemented via an additive
process--is produced by traveling in a circular path around the primary subject in
an effort to surpass casual observation by injecting a sense of examination.

My paintings portray the micro-circuit: its physicality and, to me, an appealing pictorial strength. Similar to Peter Haley’s abstract experiments, James Sienna’s pattern-based paintings, or Piet Mondrian’s design-oriented work, I strive to turn these portraits into visually powerful macro-objects. In so doing, I seek to assign greater significance to a chip beyond just its functionality and use my artistic practice to marvel at the importance of science for the existence of contemporary society. On slim-profiled aluminum, similar to the factory printing process, I transfer the chosen chip design onto the acrylic glaze film exposing the sections and channels. The channels have a networked appearance, resembling the micro-wires of the chip circuitry. After these sections and channels have been colored, the work becomes a large painted image of the miniature conductors of the circuit. -Nemanja
