Abstract:

  • This talk will focus on my 3-channel video installation and photographic series, The Tree Alone. The project takes its title from a line within Virginia Woolf’s novel The Waves. She writes, “The tree alone resisted our eternal flux, for I changed and changed.” The manipulation of imagery within this series attempts to visually manifest the conflicting durations between nature and self. Taken as a whole, the work emphasizes the necessary duration of present experience by asking the viewer to repeatedly consider their perceptive response to familiar, visual phenomena.
