Peacock is a photograph made without the use of a camera. Beginning with a classic studio portrait Ross-Ho stencilled out the subject to reveal the pattern of the underlying cutting board before scanning it into a computer. The resulting laser print presents a portrait as void: the figure reduced to a generic grid, its lines intersecting with the architecture in the background, blurring the perception of reality, illusion and construction.
