A collaboration project between Madeline Bartley and Maria Speiss was intended to bring print media and clay work together. From a dedicated week long install, Current Vitality manifests from the engagement of intuitive processes, energy, and free experimentation. Capturing the fluidity of form and surface as one artist reacts to the decisions of the other. Through this pattern of action and reaction, the installation unexpectedly became a visceral entity within the space.
