Swell

ARTIST STATEMENT

Swell is the third collaboration born out of Apoptosis, 2011 at the Denver Art Museum. This installation represents what we thought we were going to do for the DAM show, namely, Katie would project her videos onto Martha’s sculptural forms.

Swell is an immersive environment that gives rise to a dream- like, watery underworld, fecund with ways of seeing all sorts of quivering forms and colors merging together to create a quietly eerie environment.

It was a real joy and pleasure to create something we had had in our mind’s eye for a while. Enjoy.
