  • Sky Lit, 2011. Room is approximately 400 sq  feet, ceiling is 9’ high, vinyl, tape, room with recessed skylight. From a single vantage point in the room (pictured here), the dots line up and create a half tone “drawing” of light coming down from the skylight.

  • Figure/Ground, 2012. Orchard is approximately 1/4 acre, pieces of orange tape (1/2 x 1”) marked a level line through the orchard. This could be seen from any location in the orchard. Whatever this horizontal line intersected (branches, leaves, fruit, fence) was marked. The line was 60” from the ground, approximately at eye level for an adult. The orchard was located behind an architecture museum.

  • Low Rise, 2014, fired clay, pastel, stockings, 9 foot shelf

  • Fenced Fatty (2), 2014, ink and gouache on paper, 14 x 17 inches
