This support paper serves to outline the motivations, methods, and outcomes of the conjuring practice that is my graduate research. I am concerned with the notion of an encounter, a passing or touching between beings and objects especially those that go unnoticed, or barely so. Utilizing materials that possess heightened sensitivities to touch, time, and light, I engage with objects and imaging technologies in order to conjure such imperceptible presences into a state of emergence through an intuitively-led practice of art. The material products of this research include objects and images that are assembled in my thesis exhibition When Suddenly the Limb Did Quiver, where the gallery serves as a creative space that enables some potential manifestations of this artistic practice to emerge.
