NEW from Database Series -

"Fractures I"
digital collage by Mick Mather
Here I am again with another multi-layered collage as I'm dragged further into the concept of database and art practice. While looking at photographs of the recent earthquake in Italy the idea struck me that some of the geological fault line data available might lead to something. It has ... if there's more to say about this new approach to my work, I can't be certain, yet, what that is.

Fractures can be disaster, hope not in you pic. It's interesting, architectural.

I had fun doing this, Susu ... and the architectural look comes from the layered graphs I should think. :)

It appears so, and "F" is for fractures. :D

I suppose I haven't slept enough as I see a bed on your picture. Someone I cannot see is looking of there's money under the mattress!

Never put money under your mattress, Hélène. When the government comes to take it that's the first place they look!

Thanks, with a blush, Mary. I suspect this left turn into database art is a subconscious ploy to keep me from other work! :D

Back again:)

I saw a bed too, with peg legs. I like this artwork, I feel like I have found some sort of secret map to a secret room...

It is a map of sorts ... careful though, the secret rooms are cracks, fissures and fractures in the Earth's crust! :O
