2020 Portable Window Neighborhood Rolls
I continue to engage Portable Window with the surrounding landscape. Generating conversations, happenings, and videos from these rolls opens up several platforms to listen and learn in an unprecedented time of pandemic anxiety and cultural upheaval. The videos are an extension of the sculpture and capture what the sculpture is, in a sense, framing. This slow flipping is how I feel right now. Observing calm, and even beautiful in moments, but then seamlessly moving to disorienting and dizzy, a rupturing of the frame. Uncertainty. Framing space usually helps to formalize composition, but these videos frame in order to destabilize and disorient. The landscape tilts and turns. What is once familiar is flipped and ruptured. Sculpture has agency to both engage our surroundings and to heal our collective body.
