Digital photographs, screen printed layered acrylic, shelves, cards with printed excerpts from Facebook memorial pages
16" x 18"
Memories, Memorials & Messages is a series of five framed digital prints under screen printed acrylic. Each image is different—including an intensely dark image of a bedroom, an abstracted screenshot of a Facebook memorial page, matted pages of a Bible, a photograph of a tree diffused under frosted vellum film, and an abstracted section of skyscape. Fragments of hand-drawn lines float above the surface of the images as if to trace, define or describe something in the image. Each framed element is accompanied by a small shelf containing a card with a message. The text is one or two sentence entries from the Not Titled online memorial piece. The text accompanying the tree image reads; “I miss you bro. I wish we didn’t go there.” With this piece I was interested in drawing a line between a more literal element that is directly collected from everyday digital social spaces (the text) and ethereal images that represent internalization, processing and meditation.
