The works of art you will find in this space are both interactive and time-based. For each of these, I have posted instructions for how you can start to interact and manipulate the objects and materials in the space. Upon the walls you will also find quotes to reflect upon while you are in between experiencing the different artworks.
I believe that there is something learned through the experience of physical interaction that can only be learned by performing that action with our bodies. In this interdisciplinary master’s thesis work, I am not interested in using material representationally in order to build meaning. Instead, these works focus on how our lived experience can form a greater understanding of our material world that cannot be communicated through verbal means.
