"Reverberations" is a site-specific installation that consists of five consecutive 'sound waves' made of volcanic rock, industrial tubings and dried plant life replanted into the earth. Running across  a 20' sloping site, sounds were 'buried' within the earth which rise up at intervals throughout the day.  Located at Copper Mountain Campus, in Joshua Tree, CA, the installation was part of the Earthworks Now International 2005 Biennial.  Currently the visual part of the piece remains on view at the campus.
 

Recordings include local sounds of the natural, the artificial and the human voice.  "Reverberations" makes references to the mining history as well as imagery of past indigenous cultures from the area.  The work explores the role and impact of sound waves on our lives and memory. 


"Between the Trees"

"Between the Trees" is a series of site specific works installed on the grounds of Smith Castle in Wickford, Rhode Island; June through December 2003.  Located within a grove of cedars, the trees function as both armatures and intergral parts of the sculptures.   Along with elements of nature; netting, fibers, plastics, metal, bits of mirror, glass and ready-made materials from daily life are utilized to bring forth the relationships, parallels and connections between Native American Indians, African Slaves and Early American Colonialists who once lived and worked upon this site with contemporary life today.
