Seeing is an impermanent practice.
Like water, photographs are never truly still.
Love is longer than time.
The photographic portfolio, On Fluidity, is a reflecting pool for how we all see differently. Furthermore, our own seeing will transform with time and love--both through the way that our body is built and will break down but also in a dance with how we are situated in our relationships to technology, environment, and each other.
Through moving between my studio in Denmark and my temporary studio in France, at the home of Claude Monet, I explore water and the emotive aspects of color, how each of us individually engages with color as well as the progression of technology that extends our capability to experience color.
For this portfolio, I researched Monet’s process of creating his gardens and lily ponds as a living color laboratory. With a particular interest in Monet’s experience of the impermanence of visual acuity. Changed by love and loss and time, Monet was destabilized by the way loss altered his vision, ultimately and arguably. In my time in Monet’s constructed garden, my work interrogates, mourns, and celebrates the structural changes to the architecture of our eyes over time. How do devices and procedures developed to combat that physical degradation affect our perceptions of color, light, and space? How is seeing changed by love and loss?
