Heather Ujiie’s textile installation, Colossal Cosmos, involves a synthesis of several methods of artistry, including hand painting, scanning, digital manipulation, and large-format digital inkjet printing technology. Ujiie is interested in creating large-scale allegorical narratives that utilize both analog and digital technology. Much of her work evolves out of appropriation and transformation of historic and cultural iconography, where she strives to create narratives depicting the dualities of growth, beauty, loss and decay. She has described her own work: “I hope my digitally printed installations ignite deep spiritual forays into the imagination, and generate personal reflection on what is hidden, whether it be our own personal demons, or our lust for life.”
