For the Love of the Liminal

"I see the awakening of consciousness as a series of spaced flashes, with the intervals between them gradually diminishing until bright blocks of perception are formed, affording memory and a slippery hold."
—Vladimir Nobokov, Speak, Memory

In ikat woven color fields and cast bronze material systems, Elana Adler explores color as emotional transference and material as physical transference. She considers how light alters perception through materialization and dematerialization, as well as the elevation and deterioration of objects from one material to the next.
