Autumn in the valley

About Autumn in the Valley Between Here and There

I am interested in peripheries - the spaces between objects, dimensions, or concepts, the patterns that form at these edges, and how we as individuals interact with these changing spaces and chaos.

Peripheral spaces may be sharply defined or broad, well blended and difficult to distinguish from the spaces they separate. Passage across these spaces may take place imperceptibly by osmosis or it may form terrain which is difficult to approach or traverse. In my experience the most trecherous terrain seems to be the peripheries which may only be traversed in one direction.

This work attempts to establish a framework of variables (light, motion and space), which interact in a seemingly random fashion, enabling patterns to emerge from the chaos.
