Subdivisions: Aspen Grove & Sunrise Park, 2007
Digital drawing (inkjet print on archival paper)
15 3/8 in. x 20 1/2 in.; sheet size: 18 1/2 in. x 23 5/8 in.
Drawn freehand directly on a computer and printed on a high-end inkjet printer, Racine’s drawings do not contain photographs or scanned material. The subjects of his work may be interpreted as models for planned communities or as aerial views of fictional suburbs, referencing the computer as a tool for urban planning as well as image capture. Raising questions about the relation between design and actual lived experience, the works subvert the apparent rationality of urban design, exposing conflicts that lie beneath the surface. These digital drawings are a comment on the fears as well as the dreams expressed in suburban culture. Signed and numbered.
