work in progress - home
Home defined as spirit ancestors and ghosts. I want to play with distortion and interruption of notions of home in form and subject. I am working with fire, paper, learning. Part of the process/performance of this learning bookbinding and printing techniques from my uncle. I will explore ideas of inheritance and lineage and then disrupt this legacy, mimicking forms and messing with what is authentic, what is natural, and what is truth. I want to explore different ways of reading, of understanding and translating. I am also looking at ways of representing the sensation of touch and contact though alternate means via weaving audio into the static work, and playing with textures.
I am starting to do more research on the histories of papermaking, handmade and manufactured, and am excited to see how this can enrich the context of the work.
