On the Nature of Impermanence

On the Nature of Impermanence explores a practice of art making in relationship with time and place. The series was created during a month-long artistic inquiry in Costa Rica in early 2020. 

“Working with the anthotype process (an early method of image making using the liquid secretions of plants) is intrinsically related to time, place, impermanence, and transitory nature of life itself. Eliminating the camera reduced the distance between the subject and the image maker, thus allowing for a more direct relationship and encounter. 

“Anthotypes are a record of time. I am intrigued by the anthotype process that allows plants to make an image of themselves with little human intervention. Is it magic or natural processes well observed?” 

—Barbara Brown
