Co-Lab Project Space
“Mourning For Landscape” Ritual For Shelter is an experiment between the natural and the electronic. Through ritualistic process, Jen will create an environment for shelter and memorial. A narrative will unfold to the viewer as relationships are created through juxtaposition of material and video. The narrative begins from an unknown catastrophic event, referencing notions of stress, fear, and survival. This installation is part of a larger series of video works and installations based on a post-apocalyptic need for communication, ritual and preservation.
