Holographic universe

Date created
Holographic Universe is a multi-faceted sculptural installation that questions themes of monumentality, importance, and permanence with an emphasis on subjectivity as a tool for creative action. Composed of vinyl, resin, lacquer, and plaster, the works share physical properties of transparency, reflectivity, glittering surfaces, and subtle colours. This installation is meant to produce an otherworldly environment whose mesmerizing perceptual experiences and visual uncertainty encourage the viewer to question the learned frameworks through which one might view and create art. This work was inspired by Nietzsche’s conception of the unconscious as a component of artistic thinking as well as the possibility of agency through creative action, as described in Deleuze’s “Nietzsche and Philosophy”. The sculptures were exhibited in the Audain Gallery, Vancouver BC, from September 11 to September 21, 2013.
