Imagining Parts of the Past Living Together in the Future

A site specific installation built from a collection of one hundred or more parts is strategically arranged to create a dual composition that can be viewed from the front and back. By choosing to use recycled materials, I responded to the remnants of the objects' histories, color or pattern and irregular shape to illustrate three-dimensional drawing with non tradition materials. The tin pieces provide color blocked fields that overlap, rotate and dance in front of a window of changing environments, while lines of yarn wrap and weave themselves throughout the landscape. Tin cut from suitcases or containers and excess wood from furniture and cabinet pieces allow for the drawing to become a landscape of narratives; a collection of short stories intermingled. In selectively using old materials outside their original function and context, I juxtapose the past within the present to inform the future.
