Abstract (Summary)

My Thesis exhibition is an exploration of site specificity; mitigated through technological media with the intention of re-contextualizing extracted, site specific material. This exhibition featured two sculptures, a video work, and a group of photographs. Technology played a major role in the creation of the work in this exhibition, numerous digital processes were employed including 3D scanning, CNC milling, computer modeling and photography. The final result was a staged landscape like installation that was composed of three main works that, together created a scene while also functioning as independent artworks based on separate, specific sites, forms and information. The connection between landscape, site specificity, technological replication and the pursuit of the sublime was a central theme and investigation in my work.
