Mythologies of Touch


Scrolling No.1 / watercolor + graphite on paper / detail / dimensions variable

Touch
Finger to screen — scrolling activates modern life. 
A modality of transition, it moves the viewer through screen space. 
What is this landscape
Using the transient qualities of watercolor and graphite, the topography of hand written code, and the surface of a scroll, I work to translate this ecological question onto paper.
 Inspired by yamato-e handscroll, I abstract the ephemeral geography of New Orleans. 
The first in my series, the piece traces the wetland and code ecotones at the edge of this city.
