One Year Walking -Place, Memory, Ritual
Mixed media - Cast paper
144 x 60 in.
The walk is a ritual, the place an identity. For the
last year, I have adopted NJDEP Brownfield
G000033386, a polluted and neglected site, as my
place to walk and work. Though it endured our
worst, it has experienced a renaissance. Trees
and flora testify to healing and regeneration,
endurance and longevity. My work is not just
about traversing this space, but also thinking
about it, recording and collecting materials.
These bits and pieces are incorporated in mixedmedia
works that become surrogates for experience
