Betwixt is an installation comprising a series of binary oppositions. Situations in the gallery oscillate between converse conditions and exhibit changes influenced by the presence of the viewer. Representations of intangible substances infer imagined transformations, while actual states of matter are converted before the eyes. Causes and effects coolly reference classical elements (earth, air, fire, water). These obsolete phenomena are oriented as household experiments, peculiar situations, or amusing spectacle. Observation creates a relational middle space that suggests neither one nor the other by placing the inquiring mind--the quintessence--at the center of unresolved problems.
