The triptych by Susan Moir Mackay, Anthropology 2012: Human, System, Object breaks the reality of human life into these three specific categories. It examines the relationship between people, their social networks and the apparatus of everyday routines. Mackay’s work offers a means of location and charting the diversity of society through a kind of modern excavation that reveals the symbols of collection preoccupations that ultimately obstructs us from a much meaningful existence.

Heino Schmid’s, This Is Remembering takes the viewer to a space of dreams where the suggestion of reality gets turned upside down. The large-scale mixed media piece becomes a portal through which our minds find new perspectives and possibilities outside the gravity of the mundane. Possibly through our levitation we will find a sense of balance and realignment.

Ascension, Suspension, Descent, Scharad Lightboune’s triptych looks into one’s identity and through mentioning Joseph Campbell it is said that a heroic crossing over or through water was usually a pivotal scene in a myth or epic, since it signals the hero’s encounter with his own unconscious. Lightbourne explores submerging oneself into water and its significant to a kind of death and a sense of rebirth.
