dc.description.abstractThis body of work is comprised of three untitled works made from mixed media and sail fabric. The work touches on issues of recent reliance on technology, the re-establishment of place. As a secondary function, the works explore the idea of personal space, as well as the willingness of the gallery patron to participate in art rather than observe. Through interactive media, durable items and the open invitation to touch, the pieces are meant to create an active exchange of aesthetic principles between the viewer and artist. In this dialogue, traditional roles are interchangeable, and the work is incomplete without active participation and consideration of both parties. The work is built locally, utilizing materials not exclusive to, but inherent in the culture of Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay. The materials are used in a manner that stays true to locale and purpose, while pushing the boundaries in which material, intention, and method coexist.en_US
