The pictures presented in Public Art are fictional composites. They profess to be documentation of a public art proposal, but instead offer a look at a world that could be. I established three rules for each picture. The background photograph would be one I made within the past three months. All of the composited images would be from source material I scanned from a collection of 19th, and early 20th century primary and secondary school text books housed in the University of Oregon Library, Browsing Room. And each picture would contain at least one decorative pseudo machine readable bar code that I created through computer programming. If they seem puzzling and enigmatic, but worthwhile to view, then I consider them successful.
