Adriane Colburn joined the 2009 Andes Expedition, Cape Farewell's first expedition outside the Arctic, an 18 day trek through shrinking glaciers, cloud forests, lower forests, areas of deforestation and the Amazon.
Adriane Colburn is an artist based in San Francisco, CA. For the past several years, she has been working on a series of installations and maps that seek to investigate changes in the natural and urban landscape. These constructions, primarily made of layers of hand cut paper and light, illuminate organic and man-made systems that are inaccessible, whether submerged below the earths surface or veiled by the passage of time. Adriane maps out these “inaccessible” places, by collating and reorganizing visual information to create an abstraction that is simultaneously informative and ambiguous.
