The video images ("found" mammograms) flicker like a moth to a flame while we hear a distant fluttering sound. The still photographs of those mammograms hang above while the medical files with personal information are scattered on the floor beneath. Using photos, video and an audio element to construct/reconstruct a moment in time/history/memory that touches upon the concept of "away," as well as issues of public versus personal.

Performance: laundry is being hung out to dry, then cut & mended, constructing, deconstructing and reconstructing while using the phantom limb as metaphor for loss, the past, ritual, repetition, and routine.

Like the rings of the tree the bark, shell, or remnants create a shadow of life. Again, memory is referenced, the concept of "away" and "what's left".

Interactive Installation. Holiday ceramic molds in a fort created with previously used ceramic molds that appear as shells of objects that surround us as a reminder of "home". The center of the fort is a pit filled with fragments of molds broken. Passersby were asked to recall a childhood memory which was recorded and played back over and over again losing emotion, yet at the same time impressing it on our minds.
