The Reducibilty of Awe

Wood, moss, twig, acrylic paint
25x15x6cm (hxd), 2010

The Reducibility of Awe proposes that with our ever-increasing relationship with technology, our experience of the Sublime has become diminished. More and more, we look at the world through the viewfinder of a phone or digital camera – more anxious to ‘capture’ than to allow open, unmediated engagement. The Reducibility of Awe presents the distillation of a landscape as mediated by contemporary experience, stripped of any sense of inherent beauty or authentic presence: reduced to a cipher for today's commodified experience.
