After working for the last month, i finally finished and installed my piece for Waubonsee Community College. This was made possible through the Art Department and the Dickson window art space.
As an artist, I aim to explore meaning with a conscious look at material and the intersection of space around me. I am interested in how exterior and interiors are defined by line and how we engage within that threshold. Through this installation I attempt to steer our perceptual understanding by framing a portion of what is around us. Navigating space is necessary, but comprehending our built and natural environments takes more than just “being present”. A heightened perception and willingness to break down space into parts is essential.
The structural characteristics and material makeup of the Dickson Center were the key elements that inspired this Installation. I attempt to heighten the viewer’s perception by minimizing the dimensions of the space and accentuating the angular nature of surrounding architecture. I consider the shift that material can take through the process of refinement within my work.
Ceramicist, artist, traveler. Until the funds run out.
