I'm interested in a 'de-centering' of the human, such that the vitalities and energies of materials, natural processes and elements contribute to the making of these works.  I see the process as a series of human - nonhuman encounters, a form of collaboration. 

 

I've been documenting disrupted weather systems and the marks on these prints were made by 45 mph unseasonable winds in February 2021.  The prints are hung on the thinnest of Japanese papers (12gsm), that respond to the surrounding airflow.  

 

The QR code is from the book ‘Remembering Nature: 140 Artists’ Ideas for the Planet’, edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist.  

 

This is one of the 'recipes' by the artist Jota Mombaça:

 

‘’Okay: breathe.

  Now, turn off your phone, 

  and open all the doors and windows of your home:

       

  whisper a secret to the wind’'
