The series, which I call the Stuffed Animal Family Album, is the result of a discovery I made after purchasing my first scanner.I needed something to put on the scanner bed to test the scanner out for the first time. I grabbed my favorite stuffed dog, placed him directly on the scanner bed, and closed the lid on top of him. What I saw when I printed my scan was not my favorite stuffed dog, ‘Crocker,‘ anymore. I saw something distorted, flattened, watery, and even a bit scary. I had hit on something. This was my stuffed animal which comforted me in childhood.

I deal with color, form, light and shadow. These experiments also concern the number of gumballs placed on the scanner. Allowing for a more dynamic composition, the least controlled aspect of Bubble Test is the placement of the gumballs. I enjoy the interchange of ideas between Bubble Test and Stuffed Animal Family Album.
