This image is from an ongoing artmaking engagement enacted through a partnership with jasmine plants. Through the course of two years I collected jasmine flowers from two plants. Recently, one of these plants met it's end. Either through my own carelessness or negligence or through it's own volition this jasmine plant died. This image is the scanned remains of the plant. It serves as a kind of elegy for this collaborator. The image has been manipulated in photoshop to evoke a kind of tenebrous/Caravaggesque coloring. As if the plant is both fading and receeding into darkness with a light source that one is unable to quite pin down. Although it's a simple image, it seems to become active through the flattening of the scanner through which this image was produced. Perhaps it is a good description of one of our final collaborations in artmaking. In any case, one last series of artworks, this one definitely more somber than the series while the plant was still alive.
