Portfolio > Mixed Media on Plexiglass

This body of work explores the social, physical, and spiritual phenomena of disengagement in public spaces. We routinely pass by others in train stations, malls, and street corners, but are we connecting with one another, and with the inner-self, during these transitions? Common spaces make objective the different forms of solitude that are linked to the ever-expanding urban centers. Forced to inhabit them with others, the distance between people is a reflection of a deeper rift.

Plexiglass is in many public spaces in the form of windows, wall separations, advertising and shop displays. I use it to represent the reality that it creates by stressing what it signifies. While it is employed to organize and divide spaces, its transparency connotes the invisible barriers which isolate individuals from one another.

These spaces are pauses in our routines. We occupy them, embracing pleasure in anonymity, comfort in being aloof, and safety in numbers. Instead of emphasizing unhelpful feelings of alienation, I attempt to bring forward an awareness of the meditative nature of being both immersed in and removed from the activity around us.
