PIXEL SERIES

PORTRAITS

Beeswax is traditionally used as a preserver and over the past few years I have been exploring the concept of preserving and storing memories in wax to prevent change. My thesis work uses beeswax to create hybrid artifacts of both artificial and organic concepts of personal memories, which become preserved yet fragile representations of eternal online images. This encaustic series questions the relationship that exists between the memories held in our mind's climate and memories kept virtually. Images from my own digital reality are pulled in to a natural world and recreated pixel by pixel out of beeswax to interpret ideas of memory and connection.
