Plein SOleil

Plein Soleil is a series of four yellow universes assembled from manipulated found objects, accumulations of light, and collections of shadows installed in various venues over a six month period. Built from the outside and moving in, each iteration reflects memories and feelings of an external imaginary emotional landscape.

Inspired by the seaweed foraging practices of Victorian women, this body of work combines the visual language of craft-based mediums, taxonomy, and natural history museums to highlight the relationship between material and process, modes of technology, and intuitive vs. articulated forms of knowledge.
