MOTM - Museum of Transmigration
MOTM – an acronym meaning The Museum of Transmigration, and a play on the word Modem – meaning: a combined device for modulation and demodulation, for example, between the digital data of a computer and the analog signal of a telephone line. The individual pieces are like planets, which when grouped together form a galaxy, and as bodies of work are developed they become part of this universe or larger cosmos.
This constellation of work is influenced and informed by conversations, ideas and perspectives surrounding various means of migration and communication within the context of Anthropocentric discourse and how these varied stories occupy a place that is energized at the confluence of scientific knowledge and intuitional wisdom. I’m interested in how these concepts are actualized in the language of visual art in order to express the complexity of spirit simultaneously contained within and beyond the forms and systems we construct.
