Yellow, White or Grey: New work by Ashby Lee Collinson, James Herman, and Jason Urick, March 16 – April 6, 2013. Installation view. Springfield, Oregon: Ditch Projects, 2013.
In Ashby Lee Collinson’s video work, psychosexual landscape is central; a character and entity that takes on bodily forms towards an intimate ecology. Focusing her lens primarily on estuaries, dunes, and plutonic rock formations, she captures a constant cycle of geologic transition, immanence, and aporia. Tuned in, James Herman plays the part of an ingenious wayward traveler transmuting his experiences into sculptures. With found materials, he playfully calculates and encrypts natural processes; generating adhock arrangements. Reconfiguring dumbfoundedly, his work embodies narratives such as rock formations and the sunrise. Playing the part of timekeeper, Jason Urick uses looped field recordings from Collinson’s travels, punctuating the space with the uncanny and familiar.
