The Gallery
laminated cardboard and wood
7' x 20' x 7'

The idea of the gallery started after a small talk among us about the exclusivity of galleries. We wanted to respond to their exclusivity by creating our own gallery using found materials and displaying our own work to the general public.

card ribbon and ink on newsprint
10' x 18' x 24'
Scroll was inspired by these card ribbons. The process of collecting the material has been slow going for a few years now. The manner in which I installed the piece emphasizes the visual and tactile characteristics of the ribbon material. The ribbons change the light and the light changes the space. They weave to show different colors of the spectrum in different layers. The systematic ink drops on the newsprint scroll are the result of an experiment. I used cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink to dripped row after row from each step of a twelve foot ladder five times.

MDF board, wood, glass bottles, sand, screws

This piece is the result of using two forms of the same material to show the movement of time by making use of it's natural properties. The firmness and solidity of glass can be manipulated to have a wax-like liquidity, while the ever-changing motion that sand has can be frozen in time to almost imitate a solid.
