This series of large woodcuts is a collaborative project with digital media artist Clive McCarthy. Images of monumental structures within the landscape (freeways, bridges, boulders, and large-scale debris piles) are processed using custom-built code designed to cut relief printing blocks with an industrial CNC router. Blocks are then printed by hand on a traditional etching press.
