I have been foraging several things on my walks, in way that feels sustainable to me. It is important to me to leave a very minimal footprint on this land. While I will be modifying the landscape, it is my intention to only make changes that would be reintegrated and erased by nature in accordance with natural, seasonal, cycles.
Geometry of Rome, Florence, and Milan: An Artist’s Inquiry into Universal Building Blocks of Art and Architecture
By looking at a dome from above or below, we see its radial symmetry, but by imagining the cross section of the dome, we get the shape of an arch- which was even more common throughout architecture new and old, and a predecessor to the dome.
A Month in the Italian Alps: Documenting an Artist’s Journey
I invite you to follow along with me as I examine and document instances of sacred geometry in the land and nature, deriving inspiration for my art. I will practice respectful and sustainable foraging, testing the physical properties of the natural landscape, like pigmentation, adhesion, and structural integrity, to aid in the making of weavings, clays, natural glues, paints, paper, and more. As I experiment with and study these age-old creative techniques, which are largely brand new to me, I will share with you my processes and discoveries.
