DESCRIPTION

Archival pigment print | 2019

Reverse Plasma Formation was born as an investigation of opposing forces and the duality of positive and negative. Over a couple of weeks in March of 2017 I shot a series of images of the Aurora Borealis in the skies over Iceland. Though a beautiful and other worldly experience, the aurora is a highly documented phenomenon globally. The photosIi returned with left me wanting more. Months later in an attempt to move forward in this concept, I began to question what the opposite of an Aurora would be. The question that began as a random thought experiment became a scientific inquiry, and it worked. I began experimenting with negating the images i had taken of the aurora, and the psychedelic and surreal landscapes of this series began to come forward. Eventually in April of 2018, with the series beginning to take shape, I headed to Alaska to shoot additional photos of the phenomena. The result of this process is something I’m very proud of.

TAPPAN GIVES TO FACING HISTORY

This 4th of July we’re reflecting on how to bring America together through acknowledgement and education. Artists have always had a way of expressing the past that helps us understand much more than what most history books reflect. Outside of representation, we want to work toward a more inclusive future by donating 10% of proceeds to Facing History, a non-profit that helps educators create curriculum that circles around helping students gain the skills to be empathetic members of society who are civically engaged. Until July 8th consider supporting our emerging artists and educators working to get students involved in their communities. Giveback runs June 30 - July 8.
