View of the Artist (When < 100’ Away) (2012)- Video monitor, wireless surveillance system taped to glasses worn by the artist, wood.
During the exhibition of View of the Artist (When < 100’ Away) I wore glasses equipped with a wireless surveillance camera taped to them. When I was within approximately 100 feet of the gallery the camera would transmit what I was seeing to the video monitor.
Table Top (2012)- Wood, ceramic place setting, superglue, 48:00 video loops.
Tabletop is a work that incorporates sculpture, performance, and video in which a handmade kitchen table displaying a ceramic plate, bowl, and mug which have been broken and glued back together. A video of the surface of the table slowly spinning is projected at life-size onto the static tabletop. In the video the objects can be seen being dropped onto the tabletop and broken. Then gloved hands can be seen attempting to glued back together the shards of ceramic. The spinning of the tabletop greatly complicates this task. The viewer can observe the slow progress in real time while simultaneous being able to inspect the final products of the process.
Crater (2012)- Inside a small cardboard box is a model of a man peering over the edge of a crater made by a mysterious, glowing orb with changing colors. Gallery lights shining on a small solar panel are supplying the power to the orb.
