The first piece in my series "Oh Brave New World!" - The Earth Forms
plaster column, glass jar, cotton balls
sorry for the huge picture and the bad quality. The whole idea of the series besides teaching about geologic time is the preciousness of Earth hence the glass jar on a column (could easily be knocked over and shattered).
i create installations that mix the handmade with the mass produced into enchanting yet anachronistic worlds that the use the memories of childhood and adolescence to explore and educate my viewers in such subjects as history, ecology biology, chemistry, religion and gender studies all while addressing the historical and contextual aspects of my materials.
