Mood Series

I began this collage series as part of a Black Paint Curriculum Lab session where we explored relationships between materials + meaning + memory as a curricular process. We mailed materials kits to anyone who wished to participate and then we shared a Zoom space while we individually engaged in creating. Throughout the pandemic we found many practices like this to push on the limitations of the isolating virtual environment. The pieces themselves are titled Mood #1 Grief, Mood #2 Joy, and Mood #3 Principles, representing the range of emotions that emerged for me at different stages of the pandemic.
