More than a year in the making, the objects in this installation were in need of the right place. When I create objects in my studio, they are not intended for a specific site. Sometimes as the objects come to be, I’ll start to see the possibilities of installing them in certain conditions. I didn’t know where the right place for these would be, but I thought snowy conditions would be suitable.
I spent 48 wonderful hours there. From the large windows of their passive house (off-grid) I watched the light change throughout the day and saw glistening stars in the vast sky at night. (Hello, Orion!) I was able to simply be and create.
I spent hours creating installations on the snowy land and took 200+ images. Once I returned home and uploaded photos to my computer to process all those raw images, I whittled them down to 100 I was happy with.
I further whittled them down to 21 that will be shown as projections and prints in my solo exhibit Here and Gone at Artworks in Loveland, Colorado January 10 – February 29, 2020.
