Amanda Page makes works about transformation. In capturing and recording changes of state in materials and processes, Page explores change as a universal condition that connects all matter.
Works develop from observing transformative processes in natural systems and phenomena, such as weather patterns, temperature, erosion, interaction between organisms, metamorphosis, growth and decay, where organic substances break down into simpler forms of matter, and how matter and energy change under varying circumstance. Particular phenomena, cycles of life and death, and the coalescing and dissipation of natural systems are investigated and embodied in the works.
Page uses constructed parameters to record processes of melting, freezing, molding and transforming materials into various states. Perishable materials reference loss and fragility in natural systems and capture the interaction of forces and energies.
