Dana Carter works across media often using ephemeral processes that convey the passage of time. Her work deals with the velocity of loss, the poetics of vision, word play and the slowness of the natural world. Carter moves between rituals of observation and material experimentation in the studio; a parallel to the waxing and waning rhythm of night and day. Constellations of textile, light, and video elements come together raising questions of movement and communication across a vast distance, and reveal that the atmosphere is a faulty lens.
