I was the visiting artist-in-residence at the Tides Institute and Museum of Art in Eastport, Maine for the month of June in 2015. It was an incredible experience that culminated in the creation of multiple pieces, specifically this series, "Colony Control," a group of three print-based objects created through the funding of the Tides Institute (http://tidesinstitute.org/) and ArtPlace (http://www.artplaceamerica.org/). These pieces were inspired by the aquaculture of Atlantic salmon holding-pens in the north Atlantic as a contemplation on the forms that are taken to control nature, and the inability to ultimately contain it. Byproducts and unintended consequences are inexplicably linked to the failure of control-systems. These pieces were created by relief printing from oak, cutting and assembling the prints, and using the "leftover" cut paper to create the changes in the forms.
