INTRO A multimedia, interdisciplinary visual artist. Debra's work ranges from installation to social practice art. The themes she broaches reflect a study of persistent social and moral issues, an urge to highlight overlooked continuities and patterns, suggest affinities, uncover potential alliances. Her installations stage transitional states that aim to elicit from the visitor recognition in another moral reality. Imagery is drawn; phenomena are drawn from nature. By embedding the viewer within the imagery as part of a process, the ‘event’ might be felt; representation might shift into reflection; barriers might instead be porous passageways to a state of becoming. The media and production processes, the incorporation of a site’s features emphasize the interplay between perspective, scale, physicality, context. Each composition is comprised of unique, variable components; their assemblage, even partial, aims to conjure a sensory experience that will spur the imagination to further inquiry. Early studies in sculpture, archaeology, anthropology and environmental design as well as experience in participatory design also underpin a practice that includes concept design and development for institutions and industries in collaboration with technicians, scientists, scholars, poets, planners and architects. Each project is conceived as a vehicle for accessing the unfamiliar, for triggering then nurturing processes of interdependence.
