Something to Grasp, Noting to Hold
Something to Grasp, Nothing to Hold explores fragmentary forms and objects in flux and the shift that emerge between materiality and representation. These unique B&W photograms focus on fragments in a transitional state, both whole and incomplete, man-made and naturally formed, vestiges of human waste and precious geological artifact.
Here, glass is subject, object and mean through which the work comes about. Each fragment set against a black void, bears a trace of its destruction – a glass vessel of sorts, shaped by time and nature, discarded once its function dissolves. A cycle symptomatic of mass-production, circulation and consumption of things.
