This project finds its muse in resolution, questioning the implications and generative opportunities in the spectrum of high and low resolution. Looking at resolution through a “both/and” relationship, a nesting of the two provides collisions of tonal fields that provoke and create new and unexpected territiories.

Investigating resolution through the cmyk halftone, the process of screening and nesting began with a flower: the gladiola. With strong tonal character, the varying resolution in halftones reveals a more nuanced story. The architecture takes on a similar characteristic as moments from the programmatic matrix are screened and melded together, pixels creating a tonal mixture and new spatial relationships.
