Kristin Scheving explores the pattern recognition of material layers woven into the various cycles that make up the everyday. Scenes of a transitory nature, photographs, video and illustrations are evidence of Kristin’s lifetime of honing her aesthetic for patterns and the threads interwoven in them that are connected to the patterns that engulf us such as the earthly seasons, lunar months, planetary rotations, and epochs of human civilization. She displays a synchronicity between these larger patterns and the patterns of our everyday lives. Working often with video as an artist and curator, her scenes speak of the reception, distillation, and integration of numerous scenes at once or in quick succession. Likewise, Kristin’s patterns do not reveal specificity of place, but the ubiquitous narrative of the global city and the vast amounts of information and data available in the everyday walk on a city street anywhere in the world.
