Concept

The interpretations encounter political statements or disperse cultural observations; correspondence that is not immediate but perhaps depends on the contingencies of travel. Subversive systems of posting and collecting dialogue create the emergence of new narratives that are shared and reacted upon through hybrid texts, images and temporary ownership. Show cased as a touring exhibition at Broadwalk Arts, Bristol then at The Willesden Gallery, London, the works continue to explore language, visual interchange and systematic dialogues.

"I am Kansas"
23 cm tall by 15 cm wide and 15 cm deep

Medium: Dirt from Cherry Creek Encampment historical site, Cheyenne County, Kansas; Kerr jarr; Antique Chicken Feeder
I feel strangely at home in Kansas. Suddenly I realized I am Kansas. I have eaten those cows and wheat all of my life. Using Facebook, I contacted Kim, a stranger in fancy gown from Kansas, and wrote to her asking for dirt. After a few emails, the dirt arrived.
