Montalvo Art Center

While in residency at the Montalvo Art Center in 2010 I made a permanently installed site-responsive work on the Great Lawn in collaboration with a 100ā€™ Bunya Pine Tree. The bulbous whorls on the outer bark signal the remnants of branches.  I measured each whorl and had custom mirrored stainless steel pieces made and fitted into each visible hole to mark the treeā€™s historical growth patterns, call attention to its presence on the Great Lawn, and to reflect light and the surrounding environment back at park visitors. Boundaries get broken down ā€“ the outer world is reflected through an interior hole, the sun gleams from within a living tree

Marin MOCA

Four alcoves at the Marin Museum of Craft and Design were washed with Tumeric - a spice that has physically healing properties, is connected to prayer, and when exposed to light, fades. In this show I used Tumeric to highlight architectural details, and the ephemeral nature of all things.  The yellow color faded gradually over the duration of the show and eventually disappeared.
