Flashpoint is an assemblage of four distinct elemental forms: the mind’s internal workings, a river’s digressions, the rhythms of sleep, and the sprawling patterns of fire. These disparate elements converse with one another, intertwine, overlap, and rupture the surface of the folded, translucent folios, creating complex hidden interiors. Each collaborator investigated their chosen pattern, creating patterned imagery and text that, when printed onto the page, culminates in a din of voices and visual moiré. Only then does the initial discordance of singular patterns give way to textures more complex, nearly harmonious.
