intimacy |
kate casanova | sarah faye mcpherson

this year, a pandemic has upended human routines. everyday activities such as close contact with others and travel have become risks. instead, many humans spend the majority of their time in limited social circles and travel within a small radius. two divergent spaces, the digital world and the natural world, have become essential sites for gathering, exchange and escape. 

for this exhibition, mcpherson and casanova, who live in minnesota and colorado respectively, have created an imagined world, titled two clouds, generated from the natural phenomena found within their limited footprint. each artist gathered digital content such as images of rocks, videos of water and three-dimensional scans of trees. from this content, the artists collaborated to create a space that is a hybridization of the minnesota and colorado landscapes as well as the digital and natural worlds.
