Body/Building

Body/Building

Work Exhibited in Islip, NY; Chicago, IL; Saint Louis, MO; and Murray, KY | 2002-07

This group of installations, which explored the interdependent relationship between architecture and the human body, was exhibited in solo and group shows in the Midwest and New York. Visual analogy and the anthropomorphic nature of architecture were investigated as abstractions of skin, flesh, and hair growth. Elements of scale and magnification allowed for an encounter that connected the body’s innate awareness of space to the built environment. To make the installations, I sculpted directly on the wall, I-beam, and ceiling using materials consistent with the architecture of each site.
