"The imagery is drawn from a variety of media – a personal inventory equally scavenged and appropriated: natural history catalogues, botany encyclopedias, maps, Soviet space photographs, math textbooks, astrophysical diagrams, blueprints, Arabic mosaics, Pennsylvania water towers, pattern-books, children's stories and newspaper clippings. The images are arranged according to visual syntax that is equally suggestive of dreamscapes as of satellite imagery of the cosmos." - Tomas Vu-Daniel.
