Public Art & Installation Art

My public art and installation art plays with the balance of form and sequential experience. Form-based projects, like Children’s Nest Egg, stand alone as a sculpture but suggest a designed experience. In Downstream/Upstream the forms are in a supporting role—some as props used in a journey, and some as mementos of a shared experience. And in River-Wash at Little Mekong the project records many individual experiences of a “river-wash” in the form of posters in a business and cultural district in St. Paul, MN.
