Fly Away With Me!!    

     Flying and the feeling you get when you fly has always fascinated me.   Flying my sailplane or a Cessna or in a helicopter or the 1929 New Standard biplane at Rhinebeck Aerodrome at low altitude is a rush that no one should miss.  Wings of flight is a majestic conquering of the bonds that hold us to mother earth.  I may cover the frame with aluminum so it stands out in my backyard.  Bruce Turner.  Spring 2017.

Every single organism on this planet requires water to thrive. Though water is constantly in a state of flux and forever transforming, all of it has already existed since Earth's creation. The water that you and I consume every day, along with the water that is moving through this tree at this very moment, has already passed through and aided the survival of countless beings. If water was sentient, imagine all of the memories and experiences it would possess from previous lives.

Barrier
2017
Mixed Media and Performance with Violin
72"x60"x48"

This piece represents the mental barrier I put between myself and the outside world. I'm afraid of rejection, so I'd rather be inside a cage that I make for myself than open to the judgments and perceptions of others. Performing with my violin within the confines of my barrier represents the
safety that I feel within the walls that I’ve created for myself, while simultaneously expressing my desire to be able to communicate with those outside of that barrier.

Instillation- salvaged wood pallets, recycled furniture, y’all
40’ x 55' x 7' 

For UD students, move-out season is a time of excitement, stress, and unparalleled wastefulness. It is not unusual to see entire bedroom and living room sets left on curbs or taken away by for-profit junk removal services.

CURB ALERT is a social event to connect students and residents alike with resources for donating unwanted items to local organizations for redistribution. The project aims to intersect awareness and action, engaging the campus community on an accessible platform to create a shared experience that is at once social and didactic.
