Corrina Mensoff & Karen Tauches

 

 

Mensoff and Tauches have collaborated on several installation projects in and around Atlanta, Georgia, where both artists attended Georgia State University. This piece, “Sea Communication (at Cayo Heuso)” references pre-industrial communication and the history of Key West. The artists write, “The wind is the element which represents communication. In various cultures people have sent messages into the air to be received by the invisible and distant other…. Many messages were sent into the wind, like a prayer or a wish.”
