i surrender, 2005
Edmonds Arts Festival Museum Gallery and Arts Commission Display Case,
13 feet x 20 feet x 20 feet
mixed media installation
Imagery cultivated through a project I call the minus project was the chief element dictating this installation. On the floor composed of 160,000, #8 rubberbands one can find an image that has been scaled up from the business envelope hanging in the back left corner of the gallery. This envelope was left on my studio door with a note on the exterior. On each side I traced around the perimeter of the text and then cut around the edges. Finally I opened the form to discover this composition. I approached this installation in a similar fashion.I began with the envelope and moved to the form on the floor. This activated the space at which time I began engaging the space with objects and lines like one might use pictures in a collage or a blue marker to make a line.
In attempt to blur the boundaries between the various facets of my work this installation is a combination of combines, lamination drawings, minus projects and temporary installation.
