Artist's Description

Apparently, this plate is showing you a plant that naturally grows lightbulbs. You can’t shake the feeling that the Atlas is having a bit of a laugh at your expense.

“Color Plate 223” combines a photograph from Unsplash photographer Aaron Burden with a painting created by my father, Gus Maier.

“The Atlas Of Dreams” is an ongoing project begun in 1999. Each ‘plate’ is composed of several different images layered to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Tangled white borders bleed into centers. Source images may include – though aren’t limited to: period engravings, filtered stock photos, ArtMatic renders, NASA images, and the paintings of my father, Gus Maier. Keep an eye out for stray creatures poking and prodding at the fourth wall, and remember to bookmark your place before you close the Atlas for the night…
