Threshold is a double storage bond bi-fold book encased in a window box. The diversity of materials of wood, plexigalss, birch veneer, brass findings, vellum and parchment papers printed digitally using original photography enhancements.
Printmaking is the core through which I document acquired learning and establish my relationship to the concept and process. My works establish departure through science and technology: the need to find patterns of connection with events; to express ideas through sets of objects or landscapes; and express experiences and desires representing fundamental changes in interpretation. I make this essential movement subtle to expose and create space in which other experiences, apart from my own, can enter and find meaning.
After relocating to Washington State, I found the rapid emergence of energy systems transforming the landscape enthralling. The occasional erected wind turbine rapidly replaced by rows upon rows, resembling technologic tree farms, or similarly fields of solar panels. Jack Burnham, a systems philosopher, expressed, “A dialogue evolves between the participants – the technology and the human subject – so they both move beyond their original state.” Threshold contemplates the magnitude that creates this reaction.
