2023 Eric and Barbara Dobkin Fellow
In Avner’s words:
“I investigate through paintings and videos whether natural light in landscape imagery makes us aware of our own cognitive experiences and of how vital our own perception is…[I] metaphorically use [light] to reimagine perception as theoretical, subliminal, and personal. I seek to communicate that perception is as much a simplistic act as it is a subjective creation.”
While at SAR, Janna will explore the integration of painting and light sources through the materiality of dichroic films, projection mapping – and, of course, light. She seeks to create the feeling of a displaced body of light as a metaphor for the displacement felt as a multi-heritage Alaska Native.
