Reviewing thoughts and more research

Rachel-Wolfe_making-sense-8_533For those of you who experienced my thesis art exhibition “Making Sense“…which resulted after studying nuclear energy, heavy water and liminal psychological states. The room which was created of an immersive blue light, with a monolithic water image, a triptych 30seconds of Lake Michigan. The immersive experiential art environment I later find can also provide effective treatment of liver and gall-bladder problems. While blue color therapy with use of blue lights provides a material treatment, the simulated effects of the thesis went through the psychological route as a photography gel was created. This was designed this way to relate the way a visual stimulus can impact material reality through the psyche. The visual realm is not disconnected from the physical or bodily realm as cartesian dualism would so describe it. But rather, as accepted and maintained in traditions of Chinese five element theory, are one and of the same. While a real blue light may have a stronger and more direct impact, a psychological route into the body can also produce some of the same effects. Some of the feedback I received during the critique was the room felt like a spa, or a place of trade or commerce, or that perhaps it stemmed from my own psychological state. Of which all of these are correct assessments. Make no mistake, artists are not involved in the production of anything other than that which they want to create. They may create these things for the sake of their selves, to communicate an idea, to provide an experience, all kinds of reasons. But ultimately, to artists and people interested in creating…reasons don’t matter. Reality, and creating matters. And so it would “make sense” to create this after my personal experience of living in Los Angeles while attending graduate school.

From the excellent resource:

Liver & Gall-bladder Problems

Detoxify with the Basic Cleanse, then from time to time, say once a month, repeat the first part of it: 3 days on apples only, in the evening activate the liver with a castor oil pack, at bedtime take half a cup of olive oil with lecithin and next morning a glass of warm water with a tablespoon of Epsom salts. This removes gallstones and cholesterol deposits from the liver and gall bladder.

Minimize exposure to chemicals and drugs and sanitize the intestines. Helpful nutrients are lecithin, antioxidants (including10 g of vitamin C,  lipoic acid and Microhydrin), B-vitamins, especially B6 and B12, magnesium, MSM, selenium, silymarin and zinc. L-cysteine and Kyolic aged garlic help to detoxify. Stimulate the liver with bitter teas, use half a cupful after meals or take in capsules: centaury, dandelion, devil’s claw, gentian, golden seal, and rosemary.

With persisting problems continue with the castor oil packs. Jaundice may be caused by drugs and chemicals, liver infection, gall-duct blockage and increased destruction of red blood cells (protect with high amounts of vitamin E). Try to remove the cause of the jaundice, also treat systemically with blue colour therapy.

The wisdom of water is the emergence of the emotional body in social practice. Water, according to the Chinese theory of five elements, serves as a symbol and material pathway to the movement and expression of emotions. Water, as symbol and material pathway for energy, is viewed in the new society as sacred to the human experience. The water is to be protected, cherished, and shared amongst people to create a more humane society.
물의 지혜는 사회적인 삶에서 분출되는 감정과도 같다. 고대 중국에서 말하는 5대 원소 중의 하나인 물은 움직임과 감정 표현의 상징이자 도구다. 과거 깨끗한 물 관리에 소홀했던 때와 달리 새로운 세계에서는 물을 소중히 여긴다. 새로운 사회에서 물은 에너지로 통하는 길이자 에너지의 상징이다. 이것은 성스러운 인간 경험이다. 그러므로 더욱 인간적인 사회를 구현하기 위해 물을 보호하고 소중히 다루어 모든 이가 공유해야 마땅하다. 물을 아끼고 존중하는 것은 곧 우리 인간 사회를 구성하는 감정을 아끼고 존중한다는 뜻이다.

Thesis exhibition – Making Sense

Exhibition at the Bolsky Gallery
Rachel-Wolfe_making-sense-1_800Materials List:Nautical Twilight2015
450nm of Tokyo blue photography gel
dimensions variable

Salt of the Earth
100kg of Mediterranean sea salt
dimensions variable

30sec of photographing lake Michigan in Winter
digital negative triptych, 33.02cm x 48.26cm ea.

35mm photograph of Nordic stream water
101.6cm x 304.8cm

Sage Cypress
29.57ml of essential oil
dimensions variable

This installation is composed of five elements- light, weight, time, distance, memory. Nautical Twilight is the span of time when sea navigation by horizon is not possible and land objects require artificial illumination for viewing. Salt of the earth denotes benevolence. Triangulation is a navigational strategy to locate an unknown point with two known points. Omniscient refers to unlimited understanding. Sage and Cypress oils evoke clear and open thought.

A printed and folded book containing a poem translated into nine languages, with an image from the triptych printed on the verso, was available for viewers to take with them.

The installation engages in ongoing iterations, considering the historical narratives and concerns of each geographical location. Viewers often describe a sensation of submersion, disorientation, confusion, calm and clarity, expanding and contracting as they move through space.

Suspended Planes, installation, Los Angeles, USA

Suspended Planes, 2014 Configurations 1.0-4.0

Two square planes, one clear and one glossy black paint, suspended by tension from which nails affix twine to the wall. Painted gold clamps grasp each corner, as twine slips through. A projection of light passes onto, through, and around the planes as a meditation on words written by Kafka, “We photograph things in order to drive them out of our minds.“ In a single-reflex system, such a quote appears articulated from observable reality, as each configuration assigning a new variable, shows the limits of such a system. Viewers are able to physically navigate this single reflex system, with the aim to point to multiple systems of the their bodies to enable and dismantle a singular-reflex system. The final configuration 4,0 leading to a direct experience of the single-reflex planes obfuscation of bodily projection.
