As Above So Below

Or, Janus as book.

As Above So Below questions the possibility of change. Alchemy in form. Alchemy in direction. In belief. One reading of the work invites participants to consider a collection of moments worth the act of faith. An opposing reading presents barriers, testing a reader’s patience and fortitude. Belief and reality, crystallized into two poles. Toward which pole to proceed is a physical choice, but each choice references the other through symmetry, conversation, and reflection.

Behold: a spectrum of images, from straight photography to lens-based abstractions to experimental images generated through data-bending. As Above So Below combines this spectrum with typography and other graphic expressions to create a singular object that, at its core, questions the idea of faith. Turning these pages is an exercise in the sacred, the sublime. Or in the profane, the real. The choice is always there.
