Stations of the Cross

Stream of Consciousness

Stream of Consciousness was created as part of an exhibit intended to visually portray each of the stations of the cross. This exhibit is at Anderson Creative and will be set up as a meditative space during Holy Week. The Canton Repository recently highlighted the exhibit that opens Tuesday, March 30.

I created a piece inspired by station #5: Jesus is Judged By Pilate. It attempts to reflect the disconnect between Pilate’s conflicted thoughts and his cowardly actions. Pilate acknowledges Jesus’ innocence, yet, in the end, his desire to please the crowd wins out. To portray this disconnect, fragments of Pilate’s words and thoughts are incorporated into a stream representing his futile attempt to absolve himself of guilt with his public hand washing. It is created with phototransfers of my photography onto sheer and opaque fabric.
