inkjet print on polyester, steel frame (48 X 56 in / 122 x 142) cm with fan

A fabric-printed photograph of clouds seen from a plane is stretched over a steel frame supported a few inches above the floor. A fan nearby causes a vertiginous rippling of the image.

Cumulous

2000

Installation: plastic bags (7 X 9 in and 9 X 12 in); steel wire; nylon fishing line

Small plastic bags, each filled with a breath of air, are suspended by fine, coiled wires at head height. Holes made through gallery walls let in air, wind, dust, snow. The viewer may walk amidst the bags — they bob about and cling to hair and clothing, whispering around the ears.

over + fluff

1997
3000 plastic bags; steel wire; 4 photographs, each 21 X 24 in / 53 x 60 cm

The installation is composed of two works which complement each other: over is made up of plastic grocery bags massed just overhead, across the entire gallery space. Each is filled with air, tied, and suspended with a coiled steel wire. They are lit only by the lights which illuminate fluff, a group of four photographs.
