All of the images presented are cliche-verre c-prints.

Cliche-verre refers to the 19th century printmaking method of scratching a carbon-coated pane of glass and then printing through it onto photo-sensitive paper.

All of these images are contact prints from paintings rendered in opposite color on clear plastic. No camera is necessarily needed since the painting itself is the negative.

There is a negative in the aerial landscape views. Since they are all about how when even the most benign object or a building is highlighted, circled, or pointed to on the evening news it is automatically both cast as somehow pernicious and removed from its context. Call it guilt by differentiation.
