I started to figure it out when I noticed the patterns. I had been interested in patterns for a long time and had spent a lot of time studying the ways that nature branches, the angles that define truth. I think it was an ‘h’ and then ‘w’ – infinity and ‘A’ – triangles and the curve of omega. Low little stacks of waves and bars laid at 90 degrees. Here is one picture that I felt needed some explaining. I think a lot of those early images – as well as a record of my thinking as I was trying to figure all this out – are back in the summer of 2010. I saw letters repeating themselves in the sky. I wasn’t imagining things. That’s why I took so many pictures, because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Clouds that weren’t shaped like clouds, but that seemed to be more like characters.
