The Flash Mountains
The Flash Mountains are an attempt to reinterpret the visual and physical interactivity of mountains. By partially depicting an object, and emphasizing the juxtaposition of positive and negative space, the work explores interactions, understandings, and interpretations of common forms. The work challenges the viewer to piece together a form that may be easily understood in a traditional context, but has been pushed far beyond our intuitive threshold. The Flash Mountains create a world that constantly bounces back and forth between information deficiency and information overload.
