Description

As part of the Front Window Installation series, Julia Anne Goodman presents a site-specific beet papyrus installation.

The installation will consist of thin slices of beets dried together under pressure adhered by their own sugars. Sliced in one direction, the beets concentric circles echo orbits and celestial rings. Sliced in the other direction, the striations reveal the plant’s vein like vascular system collapsing the distance between plant body and human body. Merging agricultural varieties with celestial cartography, Goodman creates an ephemeral stain glass like panels based on the compositions of the winter constellations. This uniquely diverse beet harvest, ranging in size, shape and color mirrors the complexity above us with that below us.
