Erosive Tension is an art installation that explores the dissonance between how human and natural factors transform environment. Erosion stems from the Latin, "erodere"—to wear away and consume. While natural erosion is the process of wearing away and recycling materials into endless possibilities, human erosion is the process of consuming resources to construct and preserve our versions of reality.

 

Situated in an unrestored portion of Western Avenue Studios, a mill building dating back to Lowell's Industrial Revolution, the work is part archeological site and part art installation. This hybrid space engulfs the viewer in a phenomenological experience where impermanence and the effects of erosion, the human lead attempts to fight back this reclamation, and the artist’s interventions expose the discord becoming increasingly common in a fragmenting and contested world.
