it is not finished, 2018

Ralph Arnold Gallery, Loyola University, Chicago


An installation for Good News, Ralph Arnold Gallery, Loyola University. There is urgency and agency in creating space for wonder- as wonder and curiosity generate possibility, generate new knowledge. That is what we aim to do as artists and educators. This is what is imperative at an institution like Loyola.

The precariousness of balance is the beautiful metaphor embedded in the mobile. A mobile has to be constructed from the bottom up – testing balance at each tier. Using the geometry of the triangle and her photographic triptychs, Thomsen is mapping interrelatedness within her space “it is not finished.”
