Outpost explores the grounds of perception in a remote wilderness environment. Built as a room within the gallery, the interior hut-like space is damp and dim, lit only by light emanating from crevices found within the walls, floor and ceiling of the space. The crevices mysteriously transcend the apparent architecture of the hut, extending deeply through the walls, ceiling and floor.
Outside the hut, adjustments to lighting and shadow and collections of artifacts and data attempt to describe the experience of remote isolation in nature, marking place, conditions of environment and qualities of human experience.
With an attention to light, this work brings the audience into a more intimate awareness of their own observation and understanding of physical phenomena. Outpost extends the boundaries of our inhabited world, the perceptions we may have of it and the means by which we make sense of it.
