David Goodman assembles complex compositions that are reminiscent of archeological findings. Using a developing theory of Visual Data Mining, Goodman’s focus is on deciphering image clues and to reveal accurate personal visual chronology. He is part of the media generation; one that grew up with the advent of the personal computer—from DOS and C prompts, to the complexities of social networking, file sharing and the current warp speed of communication which is leading to confusion over authorship and ownership of visual media. Through all his process, Goodman is evaluating his own loss of visual memory and control.
This series, MAGNETOMETRIC READING OF STERLING COLORADO, are the result of a visit to Sterling, Colorado (Dec 2009) and it's bleak landscape. They are drawn with materials found on site during the visit and are focused on understanding the misaligned experience.
