The single channel video images (of "found" mammograms) flicker like a moth to a flame while we hear a fluttering sound. The still photographs of those mammograms hang above while the medical files with personal information (names have been blocked out by the artist) are scattered on the floor beneath. Using photos, video and an audio element to deconstruct/construct/reconstruct a moment in time/history/memory that touches upon the concept of "away," as well as other issues such as loss & gain, public versus private/personal and health.

Tree bark
Variable dimensions

Like the rings of life inside of the tree, the hanging circular tree bark creates shadows of rings underneath, which reference a previous life. This work also references memory loss/gain, along with the concepts of "away" and "what's left". Inherent in the location of this work is the history of the logging mills that put Olympia "on the map".

Pop-up Site-specific Social Practice Public Art Olympia, WA.

“Found” consumer holiday ceramic molds were stacked up to create a fort protecting our memories and ideas of "home". In the center of the fort is a pit filled with fragments of broken molds. Passersby were asked to recall a childhood memory which was recorded and then played back over and over again losing it’s power to create emotion, yet at the same time impressing the memory on our minds. Themes: Loss (disposable) & gain, memory, while questioning how we define home.
