Limn was inspired by the idea that we are recognizably human for a fleeting period of time. Eventually, the awareness and physical nature of individuals change. When we think we recognize traces of life in something that is not living, it tends to startle us. Perhaps recognizing aspects of our selves reflected in nature can be alarming because it hints at how fleeting our current state is. Body-like shapes emerge from landscape imagery and ink drawings erode, transform, disappear, and reappear as they soak through thin, semi transparent pages.
