Symptomatic Constant (Shipwreck in the Mid-West) mixed media, 20'x 30' x 19', 2014.
Detail of this project can be seen here with the curatorial group SiTE:LAB
“Symptomatic Constant” is my representation of a shipwreck in the Midwest. This installation was produced for Art Prize with the curatorial group SiTE:LAB.
The environment is a former 1920’s hotel lobby in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that was sealed for 40 years. It was created for Art Prize and won the Juried Installation Award for $20,000. It is filled with items locally sourced from the area, including retired sails from a Lake Michigan boat and local scrap yard materials. The piece touches on the twisting turmoil of objects and domestic places in upheaval. The installation emerges from its firm grounding of earth and envisioned water, reaching toward the tranquil place in the sky beyond the storm.

Slavic Village House
Slavic Village, Abandoned Foreclosed Home Project, Rooms to Let, mixed media, 9' x 6' x 7', 2014.
Wicker couch, paper, fabric muslin, found wood, clothing, plaster
This was a vacant house in the Slavic Village area of Cleveland, Ohio. I am a native of Cleveland. The Slavic Village neighborhood is considered the "ground zero" area of home foreclosures. This project was meant to bring awareness to the home loan crisis and how it has leveled entire neighborhoods in this region. The project was called "Rooms To Let", 30 artists participated in over 5 homes. I chose to do an installation with all local materials. The people of the neighborhood, including the children from The Broadway School of Music, helped me gather a store materials form their homes to produce this work. I also gathered materials from a local sewing machine manufacturer. They saved old sheets, dishes, chairs and many other items, that afterwards where returned. The volunteers where proud to have the objects back knowing, that the intention of the project would linger in the objects in their homes.
