Resurgency, 2006

Algae, paper, plaster, soil, concrete rubble, and single channel rear-projection video loop., 1h 3m 0s, Dimensions Variable


Resurgency is composed of a field of biomorphic forms that seem to have erupted from the concrete flooring in various stages of growth, along with an animated video projection of similar ovoid-shaped entities. Taken together, the work is intended to allude to the unrelenting cyclic regeneration of the natural world, and our diverse and ambivalent attitudes toward it. The time scales presented by the various elements are indeterminate- acknowledging time as another part of the natural environment. The cave-like atmosphere is redolent with a primaeval fecundity, an optimistic vision of a future not contingent on humanities' at times myopic behaviors.
