My recent work examines the horizon line as a visual phenomenon that acts as an external referent. Spatial experience is unavoidably temporary because our assimilation of it changes with every moment and movement. Simultaneously, it is something from which we seek constant feedback: We determine our physical and, often, mental location in reference to it. My work explores how the horizon line functions as a perceptual construction of space that is emblematic of this dichotomy; it serves as a visual limit or reference and yet is in a state of perpetual variability in relation to the viewer.
