At the Seams
I’ve been thinking about how we learn through mediated language, like visual maps or guideposts, when in turn these languages can dictate how the information is explored in the future. Visual representations of cellular boundaries, city maps that indicate specific zones, and illuminated manuscripts are all elements that are colliding in my studio in compelling ways. In addition to the languages these create, they imply scrutiny and surveillance. These thoughts are connected to recent work like Act as Usual which plays with this tension of compression and expansion, and sculptural objects derived from small wooden boxes that were temporary homes for my honeybee colonies (What is wrong with you?).
