Slips & Pushes 2013-14

En route to creating an installation - Rock, Paper, Scissors - for the Orange County Trans-Pacific Triennial in 2013, Karapetian made a series of mistakes: ice slipped across the surface of her color paper in the darkroom, melting and slithering beyond the rectangular frame. Creative processes need take heed of chance, and new controls need respond. First, then, came the Slips, and then, the Pushes.
