Embedded In The Flesh Of The World series explores memory embodied; reactivating gestures, marks, punctuations recalling encounters with/in the world - being outside with the wind howling around me, debris/leaves swirling; running across different terrain, sometimes falling, slipping being sucked into the mud; hiding in the grass, swimming in oceans, lochs, rivers; touching, feeling, sensing, almost belonging. Using my sensuous physicallity to create with natural/manufactured, new/discarded found materials. I choose to leave the marks of my passage, my making just as those marks have been left on/within me through my encounters. I am embedded in these forms.
Thinking about spirals and time and ability to change; of water, of earth, of space – the eddies and currents.The Weddell Sea whose waters journey across expanses of our globe created initially on the surface by winds driving sea-ice and icebergs in a clockwise vortex, forming eddies 25-37 miles across; these vast gyres generate deep water currents that transport heat around the globe.
