mollie caffey is an observer: of contrast, of contridiction, of pattern, of spontenatiy, of evolution, of revolution. here to translate and record their observations best they can so as to see themselves, see others, and to help others see themselves as honestly as possible. this honesty, in turn, expands awareness, compassion, and facilitates healing.
mollie is  a vessel, a poet, a psychomp, a synedoch, an eteranl force and a contained human.
they have an MFA from the Department of Fiber and Materials Studies at Tyler School of Art and Architecture. their work is collage in many dimensions: individual pieces including video, sound, writing, drawings, and sculpture brought together in a myriad of configurations never to be exactly replicated, to create immersive sometimes actively interactive environments. theses spaces are for awakening the imagination of the world (the audience) and affirming the reciprocal relationship between care and boundless envisioning of the possibilities of making and shaping our world.
from the Midwest, they are currently based on the unceded lands of the Lenni-Lenape peoples, known today as Philadelphia, PA.

this is a practice in activating the unseen body: an emotional body that is housed inside of the corporeal individual and networked collective body. this felt body is imprinted with everything that has ever occurred. we hold it inside of us, it is life force, it is too impulsive to ever become tangible. i am investigating the strength of this body and the infinite fibrous connections of it: in this way the work of spiders and webs, nets is extremely important to a translation of the unseen. the work deals in the precarious nature of all matter: the retention of memory and its subject to time and place, how the physical and temporal world seem stable and prove to be endlessly uncertain. t am creating a loop of relation through reconfiguration of objects, which opens up the opportunity for a shift in perception and perceptual change. based in the aesthetic and spatial language of theater sets, public access, and places of pilgrimage and sites of devotion, the work transcends fixed notions of what our sensorial experiences are supposed to be. in conversation with ideas presented through alternative realities, science fiction, meta and astrophysics, and the philosophy of world-building, i embrace the liminality of time as it is tracked through personal and collective history. religious and occult iconography and practices, especially around death and reaching unseen worlds of spirits, are a well from which archetypal narrative and imagery is drawn: to convey then question truths on which we build our worlds. water, dirt, salt, rope, plant materials, wax, and flame are all important components of traditional rituals, symbols of purification, and materials employed directly in my work. electricity is vital to this, as it is the unseen body contained inside of the corporeal, thus video and audio components are inevitable and imperative means of translation in the work.
