“Memories are like stones, time and distance erode them like acid.“ – Ugo Betti
“It has never been my object to record my dreams,
just the determination to realize them.“ – Man Ray
#WNDRLST _WNDRLND or Wonderlust Wandlerland is my first multi-media exhibition.
The series is created from self-generated images & video, clip art, 35MM slides, scanned photos, and other found materials.
Its contents are centered around themes of self-identity, memory, “lost girl” genre fiction, dream analysis and disorientation.
Conceptually, I would like each piece to evoke a clear and self-contained thought, feeling, idea or message.
My goal is to create a paracosm and in its environment tell a story of deep personal exploration.
I also desire to reveal a narrative arc within the elements that will change the experience for the viewer based on context.
In this selection I wish to present:
-Memory as a tangible, but faulty entity.
-Meditations on entropy, cycles, patterns of behavior, & subconscious thought.
-Exploration as a constant uncharted journey.
This project has been an intense labor of love. Thank you for taking the time to consider my art.
