Artist's Statement

BETWEEN CLOCK & BED

I respond to site-specific space, drawing attention to architectural elements, the eye would ordinarily dismiss. I made 17 interventions in the space, akin to musical notes, with an eye to coax out the sculptural qualities of both the room architecture & the mundane, common everyday materials used.

WAPPEN FIELD

Wappen Field is a sculpture & sound installation comprised of 6 chrome helmets, resembling face guards. Choreographed in a spatially dynamic way, each helmet’s discrete speaker disperses a vocal composition as lone voice of 1 helmet, in triads, & playing all at once, as a chorus..

The helmets evoke armor, in an attempt to create a border between self & other. Physical & psychic space is guarded, lest the edge is pierced, allowing foreign bodies & ideas to flood in. The boundary of armor asks the question: what is shut in, what is shut out?
