Nida Forest Sequences 1-7


A sequence represents multiple slightly different versions of a theme or phenomenon. It gives a spectrum of visual experience, informing about non-absoluteness, shifts, glitches and relativity. Nida Forest Sequences 1-7 derives from a residency at Nida Art Colony in Lithuania, September 2018. The work reflects on the forest paths on a conceptual level, and on perception and experience of those. The sequences are put together as 3D foldable objects. A viewer has to flip through every sequence to look it through, yet can only look at one spread at a time. When we choose one perspective, we reject another. Selected as semifinalist in Minnesota Center for Book Art Prize 2022.
