But DO WE Connect

2018

The project I made during my artists residency in Cleveland, Ohio with Cleveland Print Room, a fantastic community photographic darkroom and gallery. I also made work with Brick Ceramic & Design Studio. This work is a meditation on the theme of connection: be it physical or digital. During my time in Cleveland I worked on intricate one-off photograms, weaving together natural forms, vessels, and paintings of hands. In some pieces, they are arranged in a way so that they are close, but never touch. I also made several ceramic sculptural works. I made a pair of bottles, which were then separated, one ending up in Lake Erie as a message in a bottle, the other returning to Scotland with me.
