Plans & Diagrams #4
© Tricia McKellar
The Plans & Diagrams series was started in March 2006. The ideas and images continue to toy with me; I expect the series will grow.
Images are of insects, machines, plans, diagrams, graphs, mathematical notations, and buttons. Some images from vintage sources (I have a collection of 19th century science & engineering books from ebay); some images are my photographs, scans, drawings.
Each of my series has its own set of rules. Some of my rules for the Plans & Diagrams series: use a photo of a linen bed sheet as the foundation of the image, restrict the color scheme to beiges, yellows, grays, & blacks, include an insect, include buttons or other circular objects. I don’t always adhere to every rule in every image in the series, but I find the restrictions help me explore the imagery.
