With an affinity for reclaimed materials, BiSH exercises memory for places, experiences, people, and objects by re-purposing items into new forms. The resulting assemblage creates a language for viewers to consider dichotomies of our world. BiSH is curious about how experience is linked to objects within an environment. Energy and emotion are derived from the most commonplace details and BiSH works to harmonize medium and message to achieve visceral experience. Exploring juxtapositions of order/chaos and internal/external, polarities become a cycle evolving through the perpetual (re)experience of creative action that breeds active creation.
Mixed media installations are among the most dynamic work from BiSH; experimenting on-site at festivals, public spaces, and in contemporary galleries. Immersive mediums such as books, sound, stickers, and graffiti solicit interaction thereby integrating the audience into the artistic experience. It is not until the audience engages that they enter a new realm of perception; there are no hierarchies or (in)correct ways to think within this realm. The traces that the work leaves and/or the wear that it endures are often the most precious qualities. Involving others in a collective experience generates the impact with their time and contributions invested in the process. This nature requires that the work is never finite or perfect; it evolves through the perpetual (re)experience between the audience, environment and self. BiSH’s design guidelines facilitate this experience but do not eliminate options for co-creation and improvisation.
BiSH is actively scheduling custom work and creative consulting. Commissioned work includes, interior/exterior murals, venue décor, festival / event installations, graphic design, custom textile work / alteration, live painting, and publishing.
