Unknown fibers and plastic
An object created from a deconstructed bird's nest which was recomposed and then reintroduced to the outdoors two seasons later, thereby allowing birds to reinhabit it.
Cross or Hammer
Modeled as a replica of a found object attained at an outdoor site. The resulting object was then placed on site of the original for two years, later displayed in an art context.
A found vine acquired in 2013 as part of The Forever Museum archive during the height of islamophobia.
Unfired porcelain and steel armature
A porcelain sculpture with a surface created by impressions of the artist's finger. It serves as an identification record/tablet as well as a painting.
Concrete and Steel
This sculpture is modeled as part of my exploration of empires, public anxiety and weapons technology.
Carvings created with a chainsaw. They are cut from a log which is dated by Columbia University to the year 1787, a year in which the United States constitution was enacted. The Forever Musuem Archive has access to over 25,000 pounds of the log which fell during Hurricane Sandy. All wood carvings within the archive is carved from this reserve.
The symbols explored vary from memorial to celebration.
