Lecture: a transfiguration of longing

Wilkes University Research Symposium
Cohen Science Center, Rm 103
5:10-5:40pm

Description: Exploring the emotional place of togetherness, isolation, and the space between, the body is used as a form of measure of our internal Self, in a series entitled, a measure.  Through a series of live performance and performance-to-video works, completed in Maine, Iowa, and Iceland, mark making on the body or by the body divulges aspects of our humanness felt only by an individual.  We cannot tangibly share this experience with another, only describe it.  This work looks to quantify our ontological existence in the artwork created, therefore proving its potent authenticity.  The influence of landscape is explored as a visual component and influence within the series.
