Pattern Erosion  (2018)   Concept, design, photography  & carvings on raised mesh canvas  by Linda Zeb Hang / WAY WZA
       
     
 Fig. —1 Color plate   Pattern Erosion , 2018; carved raised mesh canvas, whip stitched gradient binding, 36 signatures, 72 plate units, approximately 11 × 13.5”, installation variable.
       
     
 Fig. —2 Color plate   During a residency in  Humboldt County, I was struck by the natural birth phenomena, critical food geography and politics of survival within the Far Northern California back-to-the-land movement, an experience which left a profound impact on the way I think about space travel, ecology and ethnography.  Guided by my research and experience in the science of wound contraction these soiled, sedimented plastic book carcasses, with elements of gold, purple and black matter — known for spirited expansion, industry and pollution — patterns the toxicology of greed on the environment. Climate insecurities and policies of exhaustion are embedded into the plastic soil as negative space weavings, carving paths of root network and currency systems, collective electric circuitries and life cycle rituals to realise topographical traumas. Technology and the concept of capitalism erodes into fossilized chambers of abstraction; nature invades and calibrates, healing its wound only by changing shape.
