2019, graphite, sound, 6'05"
created at CalArts

Statement:
Intimate moments with a family pet emerge and evaporate through graphite rendering in Jonah Primiano's hand-drawn driftless (USA 2019). Similarly constructed, audio is collaged from home recording, building a soundscape that places the viewer into the ambiguous visual spaces. Repeated sound and image throughout creates a rhythm so that when elements are taken away evocations of loss take shape.
