2015 In-depth Interview

Pleased to share the March In-depth INTERVIEW

My sensibility is that of a builder. Chance, control and uncertainty are collaborative elements in exploring the potential of tools and materials beyond their original function. Surfaces, alluding to skin, artifacts, topographies, are the tactile connection between the interior and exteriorI’m interested in what is not readily apparent; my frequent experience that things are not as they first appear.  I think about the human condition, in motion, beauty, and creative tensions

THE UNWINDING DESTINY PROJECT Ula’s expanded art practice explores the intrinsic connection between destruction and creation.  The almost weightless humble materials employed in creating this site-aware installation consists of broken shells saved from all the eggs she’s consumed for more than 8 years. The shells are first soaked to release their inner membrane, ‘tattooed’ with text, and  arranged on a textured terrain of unwound tapes displaced from old cassettes.  The ongoing exploration is about time, consumption, the weight and fragility of words: direct, cryptic, or unspoken, to diminish and/or empower.  Over time messages we are exposed to become ‘imprints.’  What messages do we embrace, or challenge?   Language has limitations which often supersede our immediate affectivity of sensory and visceral experience, yet also has great potential to connect and reach us.  A shell alludes to both protection and limitation. The tapes reflect personal and cultural conditioned recordings looped in our mind. ©Ula Einstein 2014
