Shannon Ebner’s work is an extended mediation of language that often takes the form of photography. Certain aspects, especially seen in the ongoing series “Black Box Collision A,” represent her efforts to reflect upon our experience of language at the intersection of landscape and architecture, looking to the social world as a realistic, concrete location of poetics found and made; observed and constructed. Also included are the works A Hudson Yard, A Self, and A Singular, as well as the title work A Public Character.
