Cyclorama (Shrum Mound)
This sculpture is an inverted 360-degree view of a burial mound created 2000 years ago by Indigenous people on the land now called Columbus, Ohio. The image is a panoramic photograph created by dragging my camera around the mound as I circled it. The photograph is printed on muslin and hand treated with dye and other chemicals that create ghostlike markings and glitches. Viewers are invited to step inside the cyclorama as the image of the mound envelops them, becoming a form of self-burial and surrender to this landscape.
