Collages, constructed on mirrors, presented in groups of seven. Each group corresponding to an episode of Negative Space—A Smeary Spot, Living Room or Leave No Trace—And are comprised of research that informed the Negative Space series. They incorporate images mined from the internet, resonant materials, and texts, which create an associative atlas for the symbolic mapping of each episode. The underlying mirrors are in some cases covered with black ink or etched, producing an opaque surface. The mirror is a physical manifestation of the concept of ‘negative space’: the mirror’s ability to reflect its surroundings and activates what would otherwise be the blank ground for the collage materials.
