THE ATLAS OF HERE & THERE: MAKING THIS DAY OUT OF MANY
SPACEWORKS TACOMA, TACOMA WASHINGTON
collaborative installation with Lauren McCleary
In our collaborative & installation work, Lauren McCleary and Mary Rothlisberger explore the notion that we are made of where we have been. The world we walk through mirrors the world we build within ourselves. Our piece in Spaceworks Tacoma is a window into the ephemeral internal human landscape. It is a long walk through the intersections where human experiences collide to make mountain ranges that stretch across the spaces between us. The imaginative cartography of our everyday interactions makes an atlas out of everyone. As we map our peripatetic experiences of one another and our momentary environments, we illustrate a collaborative and never-ending fiction.
