What does happiness look like and where does it reside? Is it hidden in some kind of an external magical place or is it buried within us, waiting to be discovered anew like a childhood photograph withholding a moment of comfortable discomfort? Acknowledgment of contentment often occurs in hindsight, it is only when intertwined with sadness, anger and frustration that our happiness to be recognized as…happiness. Can the state o bliss only be achieved through a nostalgic encounter? In her mixed media instillation Disco, artist Deborah Jenkins speculates on the meaning and tangibility of this pursued emotion.
