The Contemporary Archeology series are intaglio prints that have an image created from hundreds of architectural renderings. The prints have been cut, and collaged: The same plate has been printed multiple times.
These prints have then been cut into shapes of navigational markers - and then layered, so that the lines of the background are continuous throughout the collage, and the image emerges only as a value shift from the complexity of the background.
Forget what you learned about "stepping back" from a painting and step toward the Contemporary Archeology series prints until your eyes lose their ability to focus. From this distance you will be able to appreciate the depth of information in the works.
