Possible Object: debris
This installation references the missing Malaysian Airlines flight from March 2014. It combines Google Maps Satellite images of the Indian Ocean with diagrammatical imagery used in conjunction with the search for the missing plane. This work is a metaphor for the Indian Ocean once again being a sight of exploration and a symbol of the unknown.
The drawing installation uses only black ink, reflective material and digital prints to create a variable gathering of information. I combine simple abstract shapes with seemingly objective representations to create a highly fragmented depiction of a place.
The colorful objects are small pieces of frescos, in reference to broken pieces of history. The colors are derived from images of the Indian Ocean collected within the framework of the search and the shapes refer to the searched areas. These are meant to exist simultaneously as representations of place and an abstraction of this event.
