Improvised Installations (2014-2018)
My impermanent installations are improvised arrangements of thousands of individual components, the byproducts of my haptic meditation practice. The non-goal-oriented gestures of coiling, winding, rolling, gluing, cutting, crocheting and spinning result in an accumulation of empty centers and spaces. I choose both manufactured goods and collected detritus of my life as an artist, a consumer, a cultural participant and a waitress. These materials, which will be reconfigured in future installations, represent an acceptance and engagement with what is, rather than a striving towards what should/could be.
