Study for Convergence Performance

“ A thing is a hole in a thing it is not. ” – Carl Andre


Study for Convergence Performance is a series of works that seeks to perform a conflation of the artist's studio as site of production, the space of display as the reception of image, and landscape as site for epic but apathetic metaphor.


The two videos each use the ‘green screen’, a technique that allows the “non-space” of the chroma key to assume any context or site. Here, imagery from landscapes that shift in geological time, specifically formations pertaining to water, is superimposed in the site of the artists labor. These images were lifted from the public domain of the internet. The title of the works refers to Robert Smithson's idea of "the range of convergence between site and non-site" whereas the land from the originating site shifts to the container of the non-site. In Study for Convergence Performance, the site of origin and the sign of site transpose as they collapse in time.


The photographs are further explorations in the structure of ‘being there’ and ‘performing there’.
