2006, leaves, straight pins, light
Temporary Installation at the Julia and David White Artist Colony, Costa Rica. Around the grounds of the residency near Cuidad Colon there were trails and lush gardens to walk in. I noticed that insects were eating intricate patterns in the leaves of some of the vegetation. I set up a simple installation using collected leaves and light on the wall of my residence and photographed it.
2004, grass, boots, performer.
Site specific temporary project executed on private property near Syracuse NY. This piece was produced by staking out the floor plan at 50% scale, of the Duomo in Florence Italy were I had recently traveled. The work was accomplished by walking the perimeter for 14 hours creating a trench in the wet grass field. It is an homage to the sculpture in the Duomo collection, including some of the greatest European works of Gothic and Renaissance sculpture and at the same time acknowledges contemporary European earth/environmental artists such as Richard Long and Hamish Fulton.
