Deborah Adams Doering –
Deborah Adams Doering works in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, print making and installation. She’s been included herein, however, for her massive outdoor installation Code for the Grand River, Grand Rapids_09, temporally located on the lawn in front of the Gerald R. Ford Museum in Grand Rapids. Working at the intersection of the digital and the organic, Doering translated binary codes into curvilinear forms, mirroring the churning flow of the nearby river. The ephemeral installation, made directly on the grass with non-toxic paint, faded over time until completely disappearing, posing questions around the transitory nature of our existence. Doering received her MFA in 2000 from SAIC, and since completing Grand River, Grand Rapids_09, has received the 2010 Puffin Foundation Grant, and created an installation titled Night Sky Constellation, in Hamburg, South Africa.
