Digital photographs exploring the notion of the net in its physical and theoretical form: a porous border, a carrier, a connector, durable, flexible, tangible and theoretical. The works were presented for <SCRIPT>, an exhibition and digital platform curated by Brittney Connelly at Carnation Contemporary in Portland, OR. The series was presented as a dyptich for the exhibition. 

In addition to the works presented, each artist prepared an accompanying workshop. “Consciousness + Connectedness” was held on June 22 and was led by energy healer Dawn Leuck. Workshop description from the promotional materials:

What is consciousness, what does it truly mean to be a sentient being? How do unseen energies influence us and what information can these energies provide to guide us in our everyday lives? Are there other ways to consider time and space other than linearly? For this workshop, Katie Zazenski has invited energy healer Dawn Lueck to share insights into her work as a healer. Consciousness and interconnectedness have been the primary motivations for Katie’s work since 2010 when she first discovered Traditional Chinese Medicine and alternative pathways for viewing the body in time and space. For Zazenski, the position of the seer/healer very literally manifests this notion of connection in a much more nuanced, multi-dimensional, simultaneous notion of time and space rather than the conventional concept of the one-directional past, present, future model.  

Participants are encouraged to come with questions and curiosities, and be interested to engage in conversation with someone who has a very unique perspective about the experience of life and the forces at play in our everyday. There will be the opportunity for individual time with Dawn towards the end of the meeting.
