Ascend

Ascend
The weight of my hand.
.              The weight of wool,
.                 denser once it’s yarn.
A spin, altering.
.             My hand, the yarn,
.                    slumping with fatigue.

Ascend was apart of my thesis show Dig, Spin, Repeat. The exhibition that utilized minimalistic aesthetics to heighten the viewer’s awareness of space and their physical presence. In the main gallery, the placement of these objects attempted a curving flow through the gallery to create a subtle connection between the audience and installations. The installations subtly influence the typical walking path of a gallery around the perimeter and instead force the viewer into through the middle of the gallery. As the viewers flow through the space, he or she finds different relationships between the pieces and finds changes in their perception of space.
