Black Swans
Digital media allows the insertion of time into abstraction, and for the total absence of surface texture even as that imagery obtains layer upon layer of transparency--creating optical tensions of surface and depth, near and far, that are both more extreme and (with the recent arrival of plasma screens) more resolved. Blake places such material impact in the foreground, using it to "fingerprint" previous effects of technology and architecture on the perception of space, which are now taken for granted. (And which makes them hidden from view or, in a phenomenal sense, "transparent." - Tim Griffin
