Tara Donovan

This artist applies the kind of perceptual scale I talked about in this post, very beautifully. Her art is site specific and adapted to the the locations she exhibits, building up her work in the days beforehand. In explanation of the bio-mimicry seen in her work she explains,
“My work might appear ‘organic’ or ‘alive’ specifically because my process mimics, in the most elementary sense, basic systems of growth found in nature.”
She negotiates herself into a kind of non-conscious method of working, a semi-generative approach.
