Parallel Journeys is a psychological exploration of the conscious and unconscious mind, above and below
the surface. At the same time, it dives in and out of emotional experience such as
joy, sorrow, loss, anger, hope and peace. Layered in concept, the viewer is pulled
under again and again in shifting timelines as memory blends with sensual perceptions.
Water, specifically the ocean, is portrayed as a source for all of our struggles and
pleasures, reflecting ourselves and our projections back at us in hopes that we might
gain new insight and understanding.
Wendy Wischer: Parallel Journeys is the fourth year of the Crossroads: Art and Science residency and exhibition. Wendy Wischer has been collaborating with environmental scientists and activists throughout her career and we were honored that she took time away from teaching at the University of Utah to dedicate herself to the residency. The essays in this catalogue offer some insight into the residency and her work.
