Helene Binet - The Shadow Exhibition - Two Photographic EssaysSeries/Serial Imagery
'The series is what gives the individual photograph its interest, ...tiny details within them become very interesting'
-Gohlke on Ed Ruscha in New Topographics
'All contempoarary usage of Serial Imagery, whether in painting or sculpture, is without either first of last members. Obciously, at one point there had to be a beginning – the first painting of sculpture made – but its identity becomes subsumed within the whole, within the lacro structure. The same principle applies to the last memeber. At any given point in time one work in a series stands last in order of execution, but its sequential identity isirrelevant and in fact is lost immiediately on the work's completiion. The basic structure of Serial Imagery, then, can be likened to a pack of cards, in which every card is the Ace of Spades; all cards are of equal value and all imprinted with the same emblem, which may or may not vary in size, colour or position'
