Stephanie Patsula

Relying on her own embodiment as a recurring site of exploration, Patsula seeks to move through, and with, selected environments. In her work for Dyscorpia, she invites her body into a site-specific installation she has designed. In doing so she introduces a strong kinaesthetic element that changes the work as she interacts with it. Patsula considers technology, time, and the body by physically high-lighting an exploration of the ephemerality of light, of shadows, of reflections, and projections. Her movement through this built environment hides and reveals new compositional arrangements. Ultimately, the slow confluences of body and objects act as a revelation of anthropocentric rituals and their relation to the passage of time.
