Weather Patterns: A Sentimental Construction (2012)

with Nathaniel Stern and Bryan Cera, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee

A proposition: Entertain the environment.

A technique: A sentimental construction.

 


A process:

Register the environmental conditions in a series of relational cross-currents. Make felt how the simple presence of movement in the space affects not only the space itself but the nature of the work. Ruffle the presupposition that the human is necessarily at the center of this activation. Enfold the participant in an active ecology of the world attuning to its difference. Do not place the participant in the role of direct activator of change. Sense, compose, dress, architect.
