Archipelago: Mayfly, 2018




"Archipelago: Mayfly" was formed in a cabin on Rabbit Island, floating atop Lake Superior, where I lived in isolation for a month. The work behaves in a state of conversation exchanging between myself being in the space and the natural environment reclaiming over my materials and activities. Everything I collected and made was naturally a response, or negotiation, to the conditions of the site. The work investigates how we pay attention to the minute details in our immediate surroundings, how we connect those nuances to the larger environment we are inherently a part of, and how we place ourselves within that spectrum. The work resembles a nesting process, where the notion of ephemeral ‘home’ is being closely examined. The work incorporates site-specific materials from Rabbit Island, which intertwine observational processes with personal narrative to construct an ecosystem in itself.
