Topography of the Human Experience
New York City
Glass, steel, UV ink
I am seeking to better understand my own ephemerality and the fleeting nature of both the physical body and the human experience. By using a fragile material such as glass for the canvas, I intend to draw a connection to our own delicateness. There is an inherent risk of destroying the piece with its creation, and that materiality is emphasized by its installation.
The patterns in this piece also references the temporality of emotion. Our emotions are fleeting, ceaselessly shifting and changing beneath our exterior surface. The production of this piece weaves the hand and machine together by incorporating painting, drawing, digital printing, and industrial manufacturing. This translation serves as a metaphor for the relationships we experience while living in the fusion of an analog and digital world, amongst screens that break and the soft palms that hold them.
