Through the Aftermath is a drawing installation comprising of multiple folded, semi-constructed paper shapes. Each bears a detailed ink drawing of a geological formation. It is not clear if the shapes could, if “completed”, form solid wholes, or if they are in fact impossible constructions. Nor is it clear if the various fragmentary images stem from a single source image. The shapes are laid on the floor in such a way that the viewer is able to wander between them. In doing so he or she is encouraged to attempt to make sense of the disjointed forms and images, in an attempt to reconstruct a lost whole.
