Big e |
by Beth Learn
Xerox photocomposite; orig. abt. 8"x10"; digitized print abt. 8"x10".
The picture exists as a series of layers or overlays as follows: Layer 1 - An enlarged black/white photograph of a glass slide on which watercolor was dropped and dried in 1981; Layer 2 - Black/white Xerox transparency of notes from the eti-bet study in the Alice Springs Project, published as a report in Cabaret Vert Magazine 1992. The term "Nigerian Sea" was borrowed from a dream which occurred shortly before the watercolor slides were made in 1981. In this dream I looked down over a cliff and saw below a beautiful emerald green sea and white beach. The voice said "That's the Nigerian Sea".
A large scale version of Big e was exhibited in theLanguageshow at A Space Gallery in 1994.
The Search for Life on Mars was sponsored in part by a Venture Grant from the Ontario Arts' Council for which I am grateful.
