Statement:

well,

A midsentence opened but never shut.

My entire visual practice has evolved in concert with my investigations of virtual space. Virtual space forms a bridge between the archive of sounds which my dead husband created or gathered, and the expanding manifold of multisensory language spun off from my process of grief and transformation.

To hear what he heard and through the act of listening be there with him.

These are perpetually incomplete and evolving spaces– my virtual sites of private reflection and digital nostalgia where I return to visit myself and leave new offerings, to share my new self with my beloved friends and coconspirators.

The seven objects in this gallery, including the gallery itself, form the original concept of this world. They collapse my first experiments with 3D modeling, image making, and self portraits from March through November of 2021 with sound installations recomposed from the last 5 years of my private sound practice.

well, A midsentence opened but never shut. Began in March of 2021 these are containers for 3D sculptures, images, videos, and sound. Many of the architectures and art works grew together. Forms overflowing each other as I slosh into more embodied existence and re-inscribe artifacts from deeper in my past which sat in stasis until there was something I could use them for. To hear what he heard and through the act of listening be there with him. These are perpetually incomplete and evolving spaces– my virtual sites of private reflection and digital nostalgia where I return to visit myself and leave new offerings, to share my new self with my beloved friends and coconspirators.

a container for un-named sensation

"well," begins mid sentence and never ends. It is a description of phenomena, a generative process for producing new artifacts, and a strategy for composting archival ones.

A gravity well is the pull of gravity that a large body in space exerts. An overpowering sensation of early transition was the weight of my consciousness increasing on the spacetime continuum. An internal swelling and an awareness of transformed surroundings.

I use multimedia artifacts as portals between incarnations of myself. The archival scraps from my dead husband's 2012 Macbook Pro, Theseus. I compost his field recordings and data-moshing in an expanding manifold of multisensory language.

“The ‘autobiographical example,’ says Saidiya Hartman, ‘is not a personal story that folds onto itself; it’s not about navel gazing, it’s really about trying to look at historical and social process and one’s own formation as a window onto social and historical processes, as an example of them’ (Saunders 2008b, 7). Like Hartman I include the personal here, ‘to tell a story capable of engaging and countering the violence of abstraction’ (Hartman 2008, 7).” Christina Sharpe In The Wake

an opening, closing, pause, resumption, and implicit expectation

These artifacts are sites of emotional resonance– bells that ring across time.

Artwork Description:

Now you can see I'm trying to tell a story like I did on Provincial Skinflint 14, but not backwards this time. Wanting to be forwards very badly. Forwards can be backwards to some people. Skinflint says I love you in Jim Jones's voice, a love lying through its teeth. Here I want to say I love you in the way that makes no demands. Ben struggles with the Zippo, blames the wind. Swish, flick, I am smoking. The scene changes. We are still in Kenosha. Lucas is in Berlin, Andrew is in Tokyo. We're on our way to Milwaukee. Paulstretch isn't a game anymore, this is serious. Was that music?
