Using household materials and small scale models I am trying to make visible the image of Colorado’s Front Range that I have constructed in my head since leaving there as a younger man.
Jennifer Brandon works with the slightest of things made with the smallest of gestures. Screens are wondrous forms made from a privacy film that protects us from light and prying eyes. Its thin surface is made visible as a substantive form available for our scrutinizing eyes.
My most profound childhood memory involves reading a family bible. The illustrations, mostly Baroque-era paintings, did not function as a mere visual embodiment of the text. Rather, the pictures communicated in a far more powerful language, evoking both comfort and trepidation.
Statement: I'm currently working on a project involving the game of baseball, the role of the pitcher, the batter, and the baseball in flight. I'm particularly interested in the trajectory and visual cues that the batter uses to determine where the ball will end up and how we perceive this process. For example, the batter relies on cues such as the blurring pattern the moving ball makes, the posture of the pitchers, the point at which the pitcher releases the ball and expectations derived from previous pitches. In this series I am actively investigating how this can relate to broader understandings of human sight and perception.
