ARTIST'S STATEMENT:
The "Rods and Cones" print series explores the tension between our biological limitations and the technological and ideological constructs that are symptoms of our hunger to transcend these same limits.
The human eye contains two types of photo-receptors, rods and cones. The rods are more numerous, some 120 million, and are more sensitive than the cones. However, they are not sensitive to color. The 6 to 7 million cones provide the eye's color sensitivity.
'Dolly' is a portrait of the first successfully cloned sheep rendered through a 3D geometric array that mimics the rod and cones of the human eye.
