"IN-BETWEEN HERE AND THERE"
2019-20. This series is based on years of exploring new land via a walking art praxis that seeks to identify the cognitive, psychological and/or physical context-aware components required for transforming human activity in space into place-knowledge construction. As an avid world traveler who moves residence often, I am specifically interested in the investigation on the placelessness of the in-between; the fragility between visiting, trespassing and being "home."
This research, which is primarily displayed in 10-foot increments to mimic a federally sized road lines, invites viewers to "walk with" the art. It contains a collage of paintings, paintings, photographs, found objects, "drive-bye" snapshots and digital video. DOT road paint, airport quality reflective glass beads, tar, and tire tread are other core materials. The main installation is augmented with small vignettes of place-based experiences.
