Points Of Reference

Points Of Reference cross-pollinates processes of creation, study, and meditation to reflect on how we understand and interpret our world. In response to a personal disconnection to the physical world, I have taken on the role of pseudoscientist and explorer searching for ways of connecting to the physical at the intersection of the senses and organic elements through various media and installations. Sharing objects that result from the anthotype process, elements of making, and articulate vignettes of production brings the physicality of making into the experience of viewing and knowing. These pieces combine how we sense our surroundings with study and exploration out of a desire to understand and place ourselves psychically, emotionally, physically, and intellectually within a greater macrocosm.
