Tiny Human Moments
Tiny Human Moments is a collaborative installation created with Amanda Amsel; which investigates the psychological process and energy of exchanges between teachers and pupils. This piece explores the aspect of art education that is a study about stages of artistic development. Observations of young makers’ explorations of line formation and symbol making inspired reactions to a “schema” or way of portraying an object. Phases of learning and the creative process are represented in repetition and reproduction; the art of practicing and transcribing.
In recollecting and repeating a mark by means of reprinting a photographed copy, it becomes altered and faded. An implied texture is created of an actual texture. The mark becomes a memory of the original. These memories layered on top and in between the surfaces are making a world of our imagination visible, inspired through the eyes of children.
