Updated and spring cleaned. Check out the new look and current work added to my page!
Book(mark) explores the complex interactions we have with books. It is used as a record of the subtle intimacies and invisible communities involved in the sharing of these objects. The action of marking a page is exaggerated to displace the importance of the individual page and its contents for the record of the interaction. Viewers are invited to mark a page for themselves, and consider the many hands that have interacted before them and the hands that will follow.

Writing stories on small pieces of driftwood. Trying to decide if I should bind them or not. I’m thinking they can be arranged differently, moved around, grouped in smaller lengths if I don’t. It feels closer to storytelling this way.
Come to the Open House tomorrow night! Get to know the 2nd-Year MFA Candidates and their work. Food and refreshments provided. 6-9pm at the Faculty/Graduate Studios, 1919 Green Rd, Ann Arbor.
Here’s a preview of the work I’ll have up during the reception.
Creating a scroll of driftwood for a new piece. After several knot trials, I think I found the right one.
Our lives are made up of a multitude of small accumulations. Sounds building on one another to create words, minutes gathering into hours, gestures becoming actions. ‘Quiet Accumulations’ presents 4 artists working with notions of amassing both the ephemeral and physical.
