”Moiré (Paper cut)” 2009
Paper
30cm x 42cm

“In physics, a moiré pattern (pronounced /mwɑːˈreɪ/ or /ˈmɔəreɪ/ in English; [mwaˈʁe] in French) is an interference pattern created, for example, when two grids are overlaid at an angle, or when they have slightly different mesh sizes.”
from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moiré_pattern

A secondary pattern emerges as a product of the different patterns relation to one another.


In these prints patterns of slightly bent paralleled lines are put on top of each other to produce the moiré. Each layer is a different shade of grey.
