Remedial Geologies III, 2018.
[Three variable lengths of clear glass tubing filled with argon gas, bent in the silhouette of a rocky landscape are mounted to the wall in a brightly lit room. Two black cables joining the ends of the tubes together, drooping in the center down the wall. A single black cord on either side of the furthest tube ends, and hangs towards the floor, secured by white plastic cord mounts, and connected to a power supply at the bottom of the frame. The gas in the tubes is bright blue almost white, but they have a softer, pale-blue outer glow]

Remedial Geologies is a series of works depicting natural rock formations in clear glass and noble gases. The work seeks to explore the link between natural landscape and wellness, asking whether the landscape can still be remedial if viewed through a digital or abstracted medium.
[(Detail) Close-up/alternate view, from the right side of the tubing. Plastic mounts screwed into the wall that hold the tubing are visible. The frame is cropped, so the black cables hang outside of the frame]
