Curated by Lydia Gordon, Adria Arch's multi-media piece radiates twenty-four hours a day in the Frame 301 window. Patterns of scribbles, sprays and drips are produced on eight foot by three foot suspended mylar scrolls. Summer Constellation’s suspended materials, particular doodles and celestial imagery uses the street-side gallery as a portal to encourage connection among anonymous participants. Inspired by the doodles found in the margins of her son’s high school notebooks, Arch reads these private drawings as an indecipherable language created in the selfconsciousless state of the doodler. Using the shapes as a source for her work in Summer Constellation, Arch invites the passersby into a universe unknown to them but extremely personal to her.
Thanks to the fabulous Jonathan Barbato at Arlington Cable Media and videographer Samantha Williams-Radecic, I now have an excellent video to show you my working process.
