Printmaking, singing, and working with glass are timeworn practices. Historically, these methods served to share knowledge of one’s culture and history. Through prints, songs, and stained glass, I fuse together folktale narratives and phenomenological theories of perception. In my work, the symbolical values of folk tales serve as recognizable cairns within the landscape of phenomenology.
Layering often transparent materials and textures in both audio and visual work, I strive for a consistent sense of enveloping light and air. Activating multiple sensations plants the viewer firmly within the context of the phenomenology of perception.
In German, the word for story and the word for history are the same: Geschichte. This blurring between the real and the less real is the impetus for my work. My projects are keyholes between these two realms. I build either pavilions within pavilions, or in order to invert space all together.
