Portfolio > Transcription (recombinant)

The Terrain exhibition inspired me to think about the edges of where things collect in terms of "home" — blending private and public discourse, finding expression between the interior home and exterior environment, and the translation from one form of communication to another. I took photographs of small details within this home, thinking of these objects as visual touchstones for the family who lives there—- the colors, textures and patterns as the DNA of the place that they inhabit. I was thinking about DNA/RNA transcription, the translation from one expression to another. The word transcription references re- presentation (writing, music) as well as the biological crossing of boundaries in gene expression. This front porch screen, punctuated with fragments of personal imagery, calls attention to these transitionally charged spaces of private/public, 2D/3D, and home/neighborhood/village.
