About the Image
Untitled (from Wide Eyed), 2009 represents a theme of entropy that commonly presents itself within my Wide Eyed project. I’m frequently interested in the tension between order and disorder. The image of the motel was made during the off season in a less regularly trafficked area of Wisconsin Dells; a tourist town in the middle part of the state.
