Plum is an investigation into the ways we locate ourselves within space in relation to intangible matter - light waves, radio waves, sound waves - and how these relationships are mirrored in the ways we navigate memory. Made in tandem with a book titled Plumb, the project employs fragmented text, zoomed-in images, sound, and found objects to probe the boundaries of language and memory. Full of loneliness and mnemonic significance, the work references a multitude of personal and impersonal influences including submarine echolocation, Walter Benjamin, and the 2002 film “Signs”. It is the distance between objects, the silence between soundings, and the remove between meanings that defines the experience of Plum.
