I love the sense of ordered pattern mixed with complex disarray that I see when looking into a tangle of deciduous tree branches in winter.  A simple photograph of branches never conveys the felt memory of that experience, though. The memory isn’t based on a single glimpse, but on multiple impressions that merge and combine over space and time.

Here are the results of a few recent experiments—variations on a “multiple exposure” technique—that I think convey more effectively that compound, layered, and perhaps just slightly embellished memory of winter tree branches.
