On November 17, 2013, my family and I lost our home in an F4 tornado. This body of work is a reaction to this loss, specifically the devastation of the outside environment and landscape. While most objects can be replaced, living things cannot. They now only exist as a memory, and in this case, as abstract interpretation.
This work is broken up into three bodies: before the winter snow, after snow fell which covered the destruction, and finally a reinstallation of this work in a formal gallery with a 24-hour time lapsed video projecting onto the background “documenting” the before and after snowfall.
