Standing in my kitchen, I can hear the refrigerator hum as it labors to slow the rate of decay of the food inside. The pungent bananas on the table are ripening at such a rate that they’ll rot before the day is through, and yet I cannot see them rot from moment to moment. If one accepts that everything is actually moving at some rate, however fast or slow, one becomes aware of motion too pervasive and encompassing to grasp. I am overwhelmed by change on this basic perceptual level.

Beka Goedde is a sculptor and printmaker whose work explores the perception of change, duration, and the physical body in space.  Goedde was artist in residence at Millay Colony, as well as PS122 Gallery, in 2011.  Her work has recently been exhibited 80WSE (NY), International Print Center (NY), and Incident Report (Hudson, NY).  Goedde graduated from the Bard MFA program in Sculpture in 2011, and lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

Rivers of Thought | Artist Statement:

Words are everywhere. They form a snapshot of our lives. Our identity is connected to them.  Words flow out of ourselves like the ink flows on the papers; a delta of our thoughts that can lead us to so many places.

In my Scriptograms I look for unconventional ways to communicate with written words. I focus on the rhythm, physical patterns and shapes of words as opposed to their actual meaning.  I choreograph an ambidextrous gesture to neutralize, as much as possible a dominant movement to generate a writing that doesn’t need to be read – a writing that leaves open a physicality that can free us from its meaning.
