  1. There's a very productive tension here between object and idea, thing and representation. I'm glad I looked at it a couple of times because my first viewing didn't register the thingness of photos on a wooden table. It also took me a while to see the canoe in the last frame/photo -- at first I saw that as a photo with a hole cut in it and the pink was behind the photo.

    My point is that, for me, this work resonates because the representations within it keep shifting -- in what I take them to be and in how they are (for lack of a better word) "framed." I like it when a work rewards sustained attention with constant mutation and shifts of perspective/perception.
