Kaiser integrates drawing and photography in these works, which he calls digital collages. He first drew the fly fishing lures, working with ink and graphite on paper. Then, having scanned the drawings, he cut and pasted the flies over digitally manipulated photographs of the tarmac at the Philadelphia airport, which he had transformed into blue and orange shapes. The directional markings on the tarmac are faintly visible. The result is a curious play of scale; a gigantic fly sits on a tiny airplane runway.
