Double inheritance

‘Nature can only mean inheritance transmitted through genetic code, while culture is the inheritence transmitted through non-genetic vehicles’.  [1]

Through this double inheritence, the play between nature and culture continually produces unexpected complex interrelations. The camera, already encoded as technical inheritance, enables the production of the images which transform this choatic inherited ensemble into two dimensional surfaces and, more recently, data sets. Our time, our sense of place, the occasional glimpse of some vaguely understood meaning between the shimmering doubling  which produces us, moment by moment, pixel by pixel, is the subject of this series.
