Courtney M. Leonard—Breach: Log 14
Fri, August 22, 2014–Wed, December 31, 2014
“Breach” is an exploration of historical ties to water and whale; imposed law; and a current relationship of material sustainability. Navigation lies within visual translation, acceptance, and pursuit of process. Charting exists as a logging of record; documentation and mapping of each point where the surface breaks.
BREACH: LOG 14 catalogs the expedition, encounters, and experiences that occurred from January–August 2014.
