Viewfinders

Viewfinders, 2014

Souvenir viewfinders, cotton, embroidery, found materials

Created for Season Two of the Station North CSA, these viewfinders compel the viewer to engage intimately with a hand-held art object. Inside the plastic casings are three-dimensional elements that are distorted by the lens of the viewfinder. Each piece is a nostalgic object that contains a foreign or abstract form.
