"Chance comes in here to give us the unknown"
John Cage, 1950
Cosmosis Collages, a photographic body of work inspired by aesthetics of the utopic and scientific ideals of the early 20th century movements such as the Suprematists and constructivists that were deeply engaged in experiments in technology and medicine, philosophical and psychologic conjunctions, while simultanously engaging in consepts of the universe, the cosmic, as a state of the highest purity attainable while experiencing the physical being, as a means to mastering eternity, life, and our mortality. The title Cosmosis refers to the idea of experiencing oneness wth the universe as a result in these visual and philosophical investigations and experiments. The series was deveoped as a dialogue and process in concert with Senstad's neon light structure installaitons and color environments ELEMENTS, that have been exhibited widely internationally at Kai Art Center inEstonia, SL Gallery in New York, He Xiangning Museum in China, Athr Gallery in Jeddah and S12 Gallery in Bergen, Norway.
