While teaching at the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Illinois Circle Campus in 1983/84, I began using duplicating machines to make extended frame translucent images that I then translated into diazo prints. When I returned to Los Angeles I located a digital duplicating machine in a conventional copy center which could be set up to make modular murals of objects placed on the glass and scanned. It could also hold the memory of a second image that it incorporated into the scanned images. I could set the outputted images to be letter or ledger size. I would then tape the modules together to make large murals that I enhanced by hand using charcoal and pencil drawings. The murals were then photographed onto an 8” x 10” sheet of black and white film and then printed as seamless whole images. They were called “Time Frames” because at that time I was concerned about the growth of the military-industrial complex, and the real potential for global war. Thus, the subject of the fragility of this world and its potential demise was upper most in my mind. Each image is 55” x 68".
