Soft Ceiling looks at images not as definite moments but as malleable surfaces to bend and press into. Fragments congeal before the mass is pulled apart and forms reconfigure. A room unfurling from a fold of scrap fabric, a single surface creeping past a boundary. A plush plaque. Reciting a word until it sheds its sense.
While making these works I have been thinking about the expansive possibilities of image making. To construct spaces on a screen is to build without the constraints of the physical world. A texture detaches from its host. A dream imaged, holding still long enough to examine the seams - slipping under such scrutiny. Photogrammetry gives three-dimensional form back to objects flattened by the act of photographing. Captured on screen they are once again affixed to a plane. Resulting images offer source material to pullback into the tactile world, an image becomes a pattern from which to shape an object. The desktop is a permeable membrane.
