Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Movin' Around

Abstract (Summary)

My thesis exhibition, Movin' Around redefined ideas of territory through the creation of a multi-media body of artwork intended to host a personal dialogue with places, things and people encountered on my travels. This body of work was both a narrative and an itinerant art practice involved in rediscovering the local world firsthand. This process of travel, exchange and synthesis, was designed to ask questions about what the world is like from the point of view of one person related to the community as a whole. Through collecting, printmaking, arranging and casting, I built the pieces of my story that defined and authorized my presence. My travels had took place via bicycle, pick-up truck and walking. A few itineraries included: Long Beach to San Diego, Long Beach to San Dimas, San Luis Obispo to Long Beach, Long Beach to downtown Los Angeles. These itineraries and their subsequent processing of experience comprised the exhibition Movin' Around.
