Working Title: Indra’s Net

IndrasNetThis is a projection piece I’ve been working on for over a year now, off and on. Once I figure out how to do a panoramic shot in the dark I’ll be able to show more. Most of the drawings are done on plexiglass chips, or else found plastic trash. I use either 3 or 4 overhead projectors, depending on how much wall is available. I was trying to sum up the materials used and came up with this: Actual and manufactured detritus, unfired clay, projected drawing on plexiglass, knitted mylar.

The title of the piece refers to the Vedic incarnation of the god Indra, who holds an infinite net with a jewel set at each node, signifying the interconnectedness of all life. I see the unfired clay objects as references to flesh–powdery and fragile–surrounded by the remnant-world of the Anthropocene, torn fragments of net at its center.

Among Invasives

Among InvasivesSoon to be on view at Appearances, Provincetown Mass: digital c-print  of one of my small sculptures, standing in a field of invasive plants. This ongoing project involves replacing invasives with natives in a small, streamside patch of woods and photographing my sculptural avatar as the plants transition.

Who Lives With Us

A visitor’s shadow appears in the piece, which is a mural made of projected drawings on acrylic and plastic packaging, charcoal and crayon drawings, cast and modeled hydrocal sculpture, and found objects. Installation view from ArtSpace Maynard’s main gallery.
