In "As the Crow Flies", Carissa Kalia Heinrichs transcribes muteness through visual codes and methods of erasure. In a suite of etchings created for this exhibition, Heinrichs combines the silhouettes of the Great Lakes with shadows of human limbs. Just as lakes are gaps in the known landscape – their identity prescribed by the surrounding landscapes, yet they are also deemed entirely separate – Heinrichs’s etchings trace a body that is evidenced only by its obstruction. Using land as metaphor, this series likens the way in which a human body is held in a body of water as similar to how water is formed by how it is held by the land. It is a visualization of the secrecy of our presence within a landscape, eliciting thoughts of how we lie/stand/reside within a landscape, how we share its elements, and how we change it in unknown ways. It is a visualization of the process in which stories become secrets.
