Far-Away-Water

Jarvi Kononen's avatar Jarvi Kononen Vote Code: 68549

My proposal is for a sculptural installation that uses photographic prints as the sculptural medium. The name "Far-Away-Water" comes from O-wash-ta-nong, referring to the Grand River. I grew up in Grand Ledge, Michigan and so have a long standing connection to the Grand River and the Michigan landscape, and seek to create and installation of cut and sculpted photographs of the Grand River at different points that imparts a sense of wonder at the nature of rivers and our relationship to water in both a broad and specific sense. My work involves an extended process that involves the creation or capturing of images which are then fragmented and arranged in a specific space, with the sculptural treatment of the prints exploring the materiality of photographs as well as the indexical relationship to place in the captured image.
