Caitlin Masley
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: In previous drawings, installations and sculptural works, I am often reconstructing space and architectural situations from ideas of possible worlds suiting the needs of changing landscape and its mobile population. The base of all this work begins with images from political media outlets, mining online archives or take my own photos when I can, from geopolitical and social structural projects around the world. From there, using various modern architectural materials, begins an obsessive treatment of space, meticulously hand recording every block, passageway, and texture on such a large scale to engulf the viewer and locate ourselves within the newly created space. Through layering and subtracting fractions of various structures, the works collectively record the invisible history of where; where we go, where we live, how we create, erase or redraw borders and the colors that depict this visual information. The viewer sees a wasteland, contrast of negative and positive space; intricate labyrinths to promote the intimacy of mapping and emotions. These works result in completely organic and unpredictable image; seeped in an emotional and political texture of landscape. I am looking to learn to develop a new way of exploring society’s desire for mass building and map making through an exploration of “monuments to failure” and abandoned cities both real and fabricated. By using multiple online mapping engines and historical archives as a basis for the new works, it will also determine its mode of existence. These new works explore generations of recorded visual history and how to put the visual into the collective and include the audience as a participant.
