Accumulations

As humans, our connection to objects is often intertwined with memory. Accumulations explores the value of objects and their connection to cognitive development. Through paper-casted vessels, I illicit visual metaphors of memory processes and recollection. The contained crystal growth and decomposition parallels the formation and potential neglect of the memories of people and places most important to us.

Media: wooden platform, led lights, paper, silicone, borax

Dimensions: 10’x 12’x height varies (approx. 3"-26")


Accumulations was on view as part of (RE)COMPOSE at 130 Ottawa, Grand Rapids, MI for ArtPrize 8.
