Minding the skies
This report outlines the conceptual, procedural and material evolution of my artistic practice over the course of the past three years. Throughout all of the changes my artwork has undergone during this time, my work has always dealt with the combination of (and sometimes conflict between) a scientific, logical, utilitarian truth, and a more poetic, emotive and oblique conception of knowledge. This preoccupation reflects my own impulse to both understand my environment in the most conventionally factual way, while simultaneously acknowledging its hopeless (but profound and poetic) complexity, subjectivity and obscurity.
As a manifestation of these concerns, my artistic output includes diagrammatic compositions, philosophical illustrations, drawings of scientific imagery, portfolios of cartographic documents and methodical replications of scientific experiments. In this report I outline the various, complimentary ways in which I consider the notion of epistemological collapse.
