KEIKO SONO I HAVE A PLACE IN MIND APRIL 5 - 28, 2013 This is a project that had its first inception in 1996. It began as my fascination with the utter darkness of soot as a marking material, the thrill of the volatile process, and the pleasure of designing patterns using simple arcs. 15 years later, however, this project serves as a retreat from my fragmented life. Because of the fragile nature of the soot, it can only be made on site, forcing me to dedicate the entire duration of production at the space of installation. I build a strong relationship with the space, and relish the silence of soot accumulating on paper surface.
