Drawn by the impalpable, I am lured by what is living under the surface of worldly object matter - that which is hidden, transcending from the mundane elements of sculpture, the stimulus and its beyonds. I am tempted to milk emotional processes and social entanglements and take them, delicately obscured, onto an energetic discourse of spiritual projection. In a combination of symbolic materials that will alter through time, underlying emotions transcend material substance. Instead of venerating manifestations as solid and eternal, the impetus from the past can develop into something new.
Beginning with a pause, moving slow. Breathing in stillness, soaking in this presence. Dust, grit, assemblies as dense as bone, and layering in skins, light as air (porous), animate matters, shuffling in traversals without end, and gathering reshaping. Quiet, yet lively, teeming. Morphing. Balanced, poised, shifting in a hush, so subtle it may be missed (again). Traces spread throughout, embodying each moment past, threading, to this place, this instance. In significance, the ways the sit just so, or lean, hover, carrying. Palpable, concrete, yet swaying, oozing from fixity. A meeting of substance, bodies there all along, growing stranger with each glance.
This site-specific installation questions existing perceptions of our environment and investigates the tension between natural, built and technological environments. By working with specific architectural features, Cascade explores spatial phenomena such as crowding and expansiveness, and proposes that these occur on both a physical and psychological level. Cascade uses multiple modes of production to explore space, materiality and experiences.
