Conscious of Her Shores
|Jayson Lowrey - Williamsburg, Virginia
Artist's StatementThis piece is part of a body of work that is an extended metaphor for contemplating correlations in how people interacted with one another and how they shape their environment. The ruins and relics of past societies are fascinating. The idea of a society in the distant future interpreting the ruins, relics, and garbage of our society is interesting to me. The remnants of places and objects we make and live with now may not make sense to someone finding them at the bottom of a hole a few thousand years from now. There may well be some misinterpreting of the purposes and significance of the things we take for granted. How would someone interpret the ruins of a place like an airport if knowledge of flight were completely lost?
