Giant Being Chased 2009
For the photos that I used for this particular image, I had taken an early morning flight from Tucson to Albuquerque. The sun made the shadows long, which caused the pinon and juniper trees below us to pop, little, uneven dots with stripes of roads and arroyos bisecting the trees. I understand now that what I was referring to was the feeling of being a giant, of looking down at the world from so far away. But at the same time, I gave the giant a body that is made up of the very things he is so much larger than: he's part of it all. The dog is made from asphalt with bits of the trees making up his legs and head. But this isn't a good dog. This is a road dog, wanting the world for himself.
