shuttle segregate afterlife

Good vibes are always more productive than bad ones, 
whether you are creating, selling or connecting with colleagues.   Josephine A. Geiger

Bad Christmas Presents

Sommer Roman's statement.  I hunt and gather discarded materials: used clothing, domestic textiles, furniture parts, old house paint, hair...etc. Through manipulation and rearrangement, I engage with the interplay of physical and invisible forces such as transformation, regeneration, ritual, sensation, intuition, and the imagination.  Long hours and laboring with my hands are central to my process… and serve in altering their once mechanical & mass-produced identity to one of authenticity, bearing the mark of the hand.  Relying on physical and visual sensation, the objects draw the viewer in for contemplative and meaningful encounters.  The mysterious yet loaded exchange between an individual and material objects is of continual interest to me.

  • Drift. 
    Allow yourself to wander aimlessly. Explore adjacencies. Lack judgment. Postpone criticism.

Dog Cozie above, and the ultimate FedEx Cozie Ad:

It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.
