I’m excited to announce I am part of the 2024 Portland Winter Light Festival, with a new installation at Blackfish Gallery. The PDXWLF is amazing city-wide event, and I am please to join it once again, with a new monumental installation; Leviathan/Ouroboros.
Constructed out of a skin of recovered fishing nets and filled with local plastic trash, the installation Leviathan / Ouroboros imagines the incarnation of the Anthropocene as a self-consuming serpent.
Designed to capture the paradox of emergent behavior in a collective system spiraling heedlessly towards its own catastrophic unraveling, Leviathan / Ouroboros provides viewers with a tangible connection to abstractions of environmental collapse and spiritual isolation. The machinations of human progress carries us onward to an uncertain light, and we are the helpless links of its great sinews and the prey of its winding intricacies.
Come see it at Blackfish Gallery from February 1st – March 2nd, with extended nighttime hours from 6 PM – 10 PM on February 2nd, 3rd, 9th and 10th.
