The Huntress
  2012
performance

Built of details mined from local Washington, D.C. history, a sketch of a character emerges through performative gesture. Shifting ideas of civic servitude intermix with the residue of a wider history of free speech. The Huntress constructs a portrait of a woman punished for voicing political opinion in the Capitol Hill neighborhood less than two centuries ago.

A polar struggle between two characters, tethered together and unwilling to compromise.  
 
         
       
 

Hunger
  2010
installation, with live activity

Calling attention to need as an under-discussed issue in society, the HUNGER project juxtaposes plenty with quality, immediate gratification with sustainability.

HUNGER, PHILADELPHIA is a site-specific, three-phase project. It examines hunger from a global perspective while responding and contributing to the local community hosting its art-exhibition phase.
 
 
         
       
 

Living Sculpture
  2008-2009
installation, with live activity

Separate but interacting vignette stages house individual performances. Task-based activity cycles through making/un-making. Time markers that form flexible but regular intervals are made visible through labor and product, while time appears to progress, invert, and suspend simultaneously.  
 
         
       
 

Stasis
  2006-2009
installation, with live activity

If DISSOLVE is about marking/observing time; STASIS attempts to stop time. The objects made on this production line (vacuum-sealed packages of still-moist pottery) are weighed and priced at $22/lb. and available for sale.

STASIS package contents are arguably better preserved, but now vulnerable to crushing.  
 
         
       
 

Dissolve
  2004-2008
installation, with live activity

A full-scale production line on display in the gallery reveals the laborious process involved in object-making. There is a tedious attempt to produce the "perfect" form and a subsequent effort to preserve it. The product, however, inevitably falls apart.
