The Souq At Dusk.

This project originated as photographic exploration of local Arabic markets (Souq’s) in the older areas of Doha.

In particular, for the Luminescence work I (along with my colleagues and collaborators) visited various night markets where I became fascinated with fabrics, fencing and pedestrain fluorescent lights. The markets are typically unorganized and overwhelming with layers of overlapping colors, patterns, and visual noise.
With this project, I wanted to convey that experience and energy, but in a more systematic means. Using the photographs as reference, each image was converted to black and white and bitmapped, then collected into a single file where layers could be turned on and off to generate random overlaps and combinations.

Original digital artwork. Giclée inkjet print with UltraChrome archival inks. High quality, high definition resolution, 2880 ink dots per inch. Printed on eco-friendly papers. Large size (A1 & A0) special edition archival prints on select papers (100% Cotton Rag, Japanese Washi, or Silk Fabric).
