Tom Denlinger: Ekstatic Edgewater(click on image to enlarge)


Investigating the complex social arena of Chicago neighborhood Edgewater/Roger’s Park with 70 different spoken languages and a burgeoning LGBT community, Tom Denlinger photographed community places where private property overlaps with public interest such as the spaces between and in front of buildings. The colors and contours of the photos were then converted to data that he used to generate three-dimensional objects in various materials that emphasize the diversity in forms and substances.
