Layered S-Bahn on exhibition at Project Project in Omaha, Nebraska in November 2021.
“We measure the world with our bodies.” These words from my mentor have held a constant weight within my practice, as I have come to define drawing simply as a process of mapping – an act that simultaneously outlines and navigates through merged layers of information. By establishing a system or structure to inform the process, drawing becomes an open-ended response, mapping the processes of thinking and seeing. Whether it is through drawings on paper, video installation, or performance, my work persistently attempts to engage the isolation and interaction of visual and physical sensations as they are experienced.
As a train passenger looking out the window, you are presented with a visual of multiple realities. The windows and reflections on a train display many layers of information that only get more complex as the train begins to move and the information shifts. Layered S-Bahn dissects these layers of actual and reflected reality to portray the overwhelming experience of the senses by isolating the individual layers that have been merged within the reflections.
