Over the course of several months during the winter of 2021, I built a room-sized textile environment in my Bloomfield Hills, MI apartment. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, I took regular walks next to Crystal Lake at the former site of the demolished Lakeside Homes projects in Pontiac. During this time I began to see the ubiquitous Zoom interface and the connections with others therein as a tangentially physical space, and an improvisational performative medium. Lichenvision was a way for me to distill and share my work and experiences during an intense time of isolation and introspection.
