Abstract

The following is a curated selection of biographical materials, poetic observations, amateur scientific and psychological inquiries mixed with a dash of extraterrestrial, spiritual, or otherworldly unknowing and finished off with philosophical meanderings that toe the line with anti-anxiety propaganda. A series of small narratives and inquiries about material usage and imagery within my sculptures act not as a guide but as an organization of information, an index of indexes of seemingly disparate materials grouped to try and express a whole. Exploring the delicate relationships between frequency, temperature, brain chemistry, consciousness, and climate poetically, this thesis attempts to question and reframe ideas of freedom, individualism, and linearity in time and perspective.
