Untitled (invisible thread)

2003-2004
nylon thread, size varies

Fine nylon ( “invisible”) thread is looped in and out of itself into an apparent tangle and suspended in a daylit room. The room at first appears to be empty, the mass of lines being only perceptible from certain vantage points.

2003-2004
transparent vinyl lettering on white walls

The unspoken thoughts of characters in Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse are produced in transparent vinyl and placed on white walls where the constantly shifting daylight makes them difficult to read, at times invisible. The installation was conceived for the lakeside Gairloch Gallery, a setting like the summer home in the novel. When adapted for the Musée du Québec, French translations by Marguerite de Youcenar were interspersed with the original English text.

fans, timers, nylon thread, acetate discs: 112 x 47 x 83 in / 285 x 120 x 210 cm

Discs hand-cut from acetate are threaded between a ceiling support and domestic fans placed on the floor at the scale of a dining room table. The fans turn on and off to mimic the rushes and lulls of a conversation, lifting the discs along the threads where they flicker with reflected light in the day-lit room. Originally shown in the former dining room at Gairloch Gallery, Oakville, Ontario, as part of many things were left unsaid.

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.
