"In my thesis project I search for patterns in the unintended and look for momentary vulnerabilities where artifice begins to break down. I am fascinated with such fissures because I believe they operate as signifiers of human limitation, of an inability to predict and control circumstances, and of a possibly subconscious or external force at work. It is in these gaps of intentionality and facility that I believe we can start to investigate that which transcends complete comprehension, namely issues surrounding the temporality and dependency of human existence. Slow Burn explores the emergence of a pattern developing, out of sight, in the library. A circumstantial product of books’ shelving and stasis, light has written onto the covers of these volumes, indiscriminate of author or subject heading. These are the marks of immobility, scars of books left behind, signs of an encroaching obsolescence. Checking out over four hundred such light-imprinted library books, I used the color spectrum, a structure internal to the affecting agent, light, to organize this new collection."
