Will You Miss Me When I Burn
“Will You Miss Me When I Burn” explores contemporary questions of nature, gender and the state of our world. Wallpapers of ash, kiln-cast glass hand mirrors, and video of forest fires and smoke plumes mark a dark apocalypse and the poignancy of impermanence. In my current work I have researched and utilized historical instruments of seeing- peepholes, hand mirrors and the Claude Glass: the dark mirror that 19th century Hudson River School artists used to create idealized, picturesque landscapes. In contrast, my wall installations and cast glass hand mirrors reflect disasterscapes of the 21st century.
