Daily Pic: “Kilkee, County Clair” is a 1998 photo by Jim Sanborn, from a series called “Topographic Projections and Implied Geometries” in which he projected grids and other geometric shapes straight onto vast landscapes in Ireland and the American West. (Do click on the image, to see it at a decent scale.) I’ve always found these “performances” of his tremendously compelling, and have never understood why they didn’t make a bigger splash. (I’ve been saying that for years … but it seems some bloggers have recently been spreading news of the work.) Sanborn’s pieces hover beautifully between photography and land art and light art, while evoking the kinds of systematizations we imagine coming from computers – rather than actually appearing out in nature, thanks to a jeep, a generator, and an absurdly powerful projector.
