A Grand Opening For Gravity, 2009 Site specific kinetic installation made in collaboration with Mike Fleming. It consisted of a false ceiling out of which over 400 feet of flags dropped through a small hole. The flags slowly formed a large pile on the gallery floor over the period of 4 hours. In close proximity, a wall-mounted unit framed an endlessly scrolling string of flags bathed in an eerie fluorescent light.   A Grand Opening For Gravity, 2009. 26 x 72 x 13 shadow box; installation dimensions variable. 400 feet of pennant flags, 10 RPM motor, false ceiling, painted wood box, fluorescent lights.

Between Now And Then 2008 - Now photos were taken looking east, then photos were taken looking west.   The Ecstasy of Influence 2009 90 x 60 x 150 proximity sensor, Arduino micro processor, servo motors, plexiglas, wood, electrical components The scrambled, jittering letters slowly come together to construct a sentence as a viewer approaches the work by walking up a ramp.

Coffee Cup Conveyor Belt Calendar 2008 conveyor 20 x 42 x 11, installation dimensions variable unfired porcelain cups, MDF, sanding belt, clock motor, hardware, Post-it notes The conveyor belt moves approximately 5 9/16” every day, and one cup falls and breaks every 24 hours. Once all the cups are broken, the pieces can be gathered and reconstituted into procelain slip. The slip can then be used to cast a new batch of cups, and the cycle can begin again from the beginning.

It's nice to meet you! 2007-2008 83 x 78 x 20 motion sensor, inflatable self-portrait, blower fans, industrial fan, Arduino microprocessor, electrical components The inflatable is activated when a motion sensor detects the presence of another person. It deactivates and falls to the floor after 30 seconds, or the approximate amount of time it would take for a viewer to lose interest and walk away.   It's nice to meet you! 2007-2008 83 x 78 x 20 motion sensor, inflatable self-portrait, blower fans, industrial fan, Arduino microprocessor, electrical components The inflatable is activated when a motion sensor detects the presence of another person.
