VASHER STUDIO COLLABORATIONS
Plumerai, from the French "to pluck" as in je the plumeria from the song "Alouette", is a collaboration between Jennifer and her husband, Architect Max Vasher, that began with the manipulation of a photograph of a series of garlands made from over-the-counter pain pills that Jennifer spent years varnishing, drilling, and stringing together for eventual use in one of her installations. First, the couple digitally converted the photo to a positive / negative image, then "plucked" the negative space from the paper with a laser cutter. Each panel consists of 35 acrylic tiles into which these images are embedded, set into a two-panel screen made from hand grained aluminum. Depending on the light and how the viewer moves around the piece, these tiles shift between positive and negative, much like the way the lay of a silk carpet changes when you move your hand across it.  (Trend art-design-architecture. magazine, 2022)
