Both images and text are intended as vignettes, one side of the book portraying her parents’ life circumstances, the other her travels to Jordan in September 2016.
Gallery hours during this period will be from 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM.
Deep Sea Changes
January 8 – January 25, 2018
Deep Sea Changes is an installation depicting an undersea environment made from a variety of plastics gathered from my everyday life. Plastics are being used to represent this environment because of deep environmental concerns for the current and future state of the oceans that are being continually polluted by plastic and other debris on a daily basis. The accumulation of plastic debris in the ocean is so severe that it permeates every aspect of marine life. Deep Sea Changes provokes concern for the wasteful materialism that runs rampant in our capitalist society.

Based on an exhibition held in January 2017 while studying as an international student at the University of Fine Arts in Poznań, in Poland.
This work is about the ambiguous connections we have to our environment in the context of perception, experience and memory. While we live in a given time and in a particular place, our awareness is often, but not necessarily, limited by that specific moment or site. The selection of juxtaposed images and sound addresses the unexpected ways in which associations and memories are generated.
These images both combine and confront each other, creating an emotionally charged but invisible line where they meet. This line is like a horizon — it retreats as quickly as it is approached.
