interactive temporal photographic installation
lacuna stack detail
10% of the installation is represented by stacks of reproductions waiting to be peeled away
As the word lacuna references both intellectual and physical gaps, the interactive photographic installation titled lacuna is a metaphor for memory and aging, conjuring a constellation of recollection as transient in nature as memory itself. Several small-scale images hang on the wall, some as stacks of reproductions waiting to be peeled away by the public. Throughout the duration of the installation as the images are removed they fade and reveal an impression in acrylic of the image that was once there. Place and person become symbol and impression in the work creating an emotive narrative suspended in the gap between, a man straddling dementia, a boy in his teenage prime, hands cradling the last harvest of raspberries.
lacuna has been exhibited in: Reykjavik Iceland; Milwaukee WI; Madison WI; New Jersey NY; Indianapolis IN; Rochester NY; Woodstock NY.
