Playing off of the philosopher Walter Benjamin’s “dialectical image”, my work addresses the dynamics of biology vs. technology and asks whether there will be a harmony between the two as the gap closes. Technology is changing the way in which we interpret these age-old perceptions of reality and weaves a new fabric. How will we interact within this new fabric?

Venue: Brown Paper Tickets
Address: 309 N 36th St, Seattle, WA 98103, above LTD Bar & Grill
Artist: Caroline Planque, Photography
¨Casa Marianella is a shelter for undocumented immigrants, mostly from Latin America, in Austin, Texas. The center provides English classes as well as access to medical and legal services. Its sister shelter, Posada Esperanza, provides similar services to homeless families, including education for mothers and children, and family case management. Their goal is to help familes and individuals transition towards more stable and secure lives. Caroline Planque, who holds a masters in Photojournalism from theUniversity of Texas at Austin, documented the daily lives of individuals at Casa Marianella and Posada Esperanza over the course of several years.

“Recently, I have turned my hands away from fabric and machine stitch to freeform hand-knitting to create three-dimensional abstract fiber works. Inspired by large shapes in nature, such as mountain sides and mima mounds, they are studies of serenity and strength. The softness of the knit structures belies the ruggedness of the hard solids of rocky mountainsides and packed earth of the mounds. Other pieces are brighter and whimsical, using the media to lighten the emotion.” – Maki
