dis-enchantment  .  spent  .  suburbia & paradise  .  wish you were here  .  opulence  .  ether 1 & 2  .  absent heads
"In her earlier work dis-Enchantment (2004), a sense of enchantment is activated by the landscape only to be foiled by the repeated pattern. However, the pattern itself produces a different form of beauty or enchantment. These two oppositional forces compete for the viewer’s attention and as a result a transformative space emerges that suggests 'enchantment' may forever elude our grasp."
