Pedestal, curved benches
This work was installed in the same abandoned house that held "He Often Dreamt" but was a lovely curved room with these custom curved benches. The pedestal I supplied and set the overall installation to capture the angular afternoon sun. It is suggestive of what I see as minimalism but retaining history and texture.
Mixed Media, Video projection, Photography, Sound, Smoke and mirrors
1500 square feet
This installation borrowed sights, sounds and smells of an industrial complex and bathed the viewer in the textures and senses of being in the machine. The smell of oil and machinery filled the air with the sounds of manufacturing and images of pealing paint and industrial decay illuminated the smoke from the factory stacks. See the video for the soundtrack and more images.
He Often Dreamt of the Ocean
Multi media, bed springs, video projector, white noise generator
This work was installed in an old abandoned property next to the ocean in Massachusetts. The bedroom window overlooked the ocean. On the pillow is projected an ultra slow motion video of waves breaking from a viewpoint of under the water. On the brick night stand was a white noise generator that created wave sounds. I believe surroundings can absorb our energy and experiences. The long since moved on person who slept in this bed often had dreams of the ocean and those images were absorbed by this now forgotten bedroom.
Multi Media, speakers, sound system, microphone karaoke machine
This work was installed in a grand ballroom of a former home for the deaf. It was assembled from an old record player, a microphone and amplifier and two large stadium speakers directed downward towards the bare floor. The vibrations from the music and sing along would be pumped into the floor boards. If you were deaf or hard of hearing you could enjoy the vibrations through your feet.
Gorilla BBQ installation
This was an experiment to see if an ordinary object displayed in close proximity to a number of fine art galleries would be considered art or just what it was which was a bunch of charcoal briquets. It was looked at for about an hour as an installation until a rude French shop owner had the installation swept away and discarded.
