An extension of the Frozen Pigment Series, this is an on-going series of collaborations with the public at-large, Community Dialogues are detail photographs of paintings made by allowing frozen pigment to melt onto panels. This slow state change documents the play between myself and other participants as we place certain colors next to each other. Most of the detail photographs come from work made in 2009 with people in the Finger Lakes area of Elmira, New York.
Universes are captured within these paint interactions, but they also represent where you may catch a glimpse of the nature of interaction at a microscopic level, in all of its forms, and how our lives are interwoven. Although most of the participants have never met, the final product shows an abstract conversation as different colors of pigment meet at a particular moment actively adapting to each other in a seemingly chaotic but fundamentally familiar way.
