Trace Winds

 

Trace Winds is a selection of drawings captured from the movements of kites within video sequences. The kites are handmade and printed. These objects are secondary to thier function- which is to be an intersection between control and chaos. These images represent the comfort associated with tethering to a constant- It is our nature to resist change, cling and wear out. By developing connections between external environments and myself I attempt to illustrate the need for order in the face of chaos.
