A Different Engine

The piece investigates weaving as the foundation of modern technology. This work hovers in a place between theater, art as performers and viewer interaction with sculptural scape. Viewers can wind, pluck, and touch the work. The machine-like objects become extensions of the body. The viewers become part of the machine, and both are in a constant state of flux.

62 Miles of Girl Talk

An immersive sculptural installation of 62 miles of guitar strings that is tightly strung from one wall of the room to the other; a gigantic harp that comes in and out of vision. Through repetitive processes from spool winding to welding, the piece investigates a history of “women’s” work. Gender and labor are as fluid and relational as a string; they only are given shape by their shifting attaching points.
