Ms. Con Christeson
I am an artist exploring communities. I experience community by observing pools of knowledge and experience that exist alongside historical rootedness and the complex concept of place. It is a topographical map of wind, weather, and time. It is the science of hard scape. It is multiple layers of memory and story. It is individual and institutional. It can reinforce or bury the human experience.
My work is at the intersection of space and place, a collaboration between consciousness and creativity. I work locally, nationally, and internationally because those virtual lines drawn by humans on the surface of this planet are not real. And yet, they slow us, confine us, stop us, turn us away from each other.
Art turns us towards each other.
