Interactivity Of Being

This research speaks to one’s interactivity with place as it relates to installation art. We are not static beings. Perceptions, actions, and approach have the power to mold our surroundings, just as experiences and places leave unique impressions on us. Here, place is defined in a broader sense: a physical space, an occasion in the external world, a setting, an arena. In two of her most recent installations, the artist finds herself drawn to the places of tension between things, specifically in the moment of dawn, a parentheses between night and day. Dawn awakens us to this place of tension, a threshold between the unconscious experience of dreams and the more aware self presented to the world. By invoking light and color in conversation with form and natural materials, the artist comments upon their character through immersive experiences, posing questions of perception intentionally left unanswered. The audience is presented with shifting variables of light, shadow, color, and transparency, so that an air of mystery inevitably arises. It is an experience that asks the viewer to fully engage their senses, thereby giving the audience as much agency as the artist and her work.
