Work > Geist

Geist began in 2014, utilizing found objects, shadow play, video projection and mapped video. I created this installation to address the idea of systems, cycles and the change of light within the season. By creating a small cityscape “set” and a projected video of flocking birds, I tried to capture the way memory affects the construction of both our psychic and physical environments. The looping video of a starling murmuration projects onto the cityscape and is a marker of autumn moving into winter, of overcast days and particularly of crepuscular hours- dimming late afternoons and evenings and murky dawns. Work shown here is from the Lightgeist exhibition at the Rhinegeist Brewery in Cincinnati, OH, the InLight Richmond exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (this piece won Best in Show) and for the exhibition, Microcinema, at The Carnegie in Covington, KY.
