It’s part breath.
comes from a series of works that deal with territories. Territories are a human construct. Implying an edge, a space where you cross a border to another space. These works refer to different kind of territories - be they the usual that exist on maps - political, geographic, economic, or the territories of emotion, wisdom, sense. The work pins lace and money into close proximity, visually and conceptually. The lace, provides a structure, holding currency from disparate places. Six continents. I sought to find images of sky from around the world, on banknotes. Some are literal – a bird flying through the sky, or images of clouds, while others are more abstract and only indicate sky. The weave of lace is the weave of the human dynamic. We are not entirely separate from each other, the information that flows between us is a constant influence and impact ensuring the human experience through both history and geography is a continued pull of threads. Using Chaotic Ground (or Wild Ground) provokes this concept – we can be close knit or far afield yet we are still in the flux of the weave.
