Evan Lee - 26 November, 2006.

The latest addition to Four, and my personal favorite so far. Something to do with the way the branches of the nearby (largely off-camera) tree in upper left merge with the branches of the more distanced tree in upper right to form a kind of one dimensional scrim, or mosaic, across the entire top half of the picture. And the way elements of that scrim have been plucked from it and dropped into the perspectival world of the lower half of the picture, like two dimensional players suddenley placed into a three dimensional world. And the way that, behind all this, a pair of orange and blue dopplegangers (the same but not identical) sit side by side, observing the scene, like remnants of some long forgotten act of architectural mitosis.
