Migration | silverprint, paint, light, porcelain and graphite
The Migration series of darkroom silver prints began during my residency in Paris at École du Breuil d’Horticulture, a intertwined history of human and plant migrations through collecting plant cuttings from gardeners and preserving their forms in porcelain. The 500 botanical sculptural imprints were brought back from Europe in a Wardian like case back to Chicago. During my Hyde Park Art Center residency I created this series of painted photograms using a migration color referencing the lifeforms previous habitat and history.
