The installation piece creates an environment that resists the contemporary tendency to obscure the labor and physical practices integral to the creative process.
This media sculpture incorporates a variety of media, moving from digital to analog to digital. Influenced by the kinetoscope, the copper structure distributes 100 feet of 16mm film.
ingredients explores the complex relationship between the food production cycle, climate shifts, and the quotidian consumer. The project incorporates three videos that use the edible components of various recipes to create landscape vistas; in doing so, the films highlight the risk inherent in today’s current delicate balance between the climate and food production. Viewers interact with the installation in four-person reservation groups; each viewer sits down at the table and views the courses visually projected onto their placemats.The installation therefore emphasizes consumers' emotional disconnection from knowledge of the risks involved in ongoing food production.
Modern Addiction - work in progress
This piece begins with the kinetic sculptures made famous by Alexander Calder, sculptures universally viewed as spectacles, full of awe and beauty. This installation piece uses the same format, but with a focus on today's modern spectacle: technology. In highlighting digital devices as objects of wonder, the piece considers the modern addiction to screen time, mobile devices, and selfies.
