Drawing as nothing- The process of deleting photos “Removing a Memory”

mirror installation


Interactive Drawing- Shattered Reflection. Engaging viewers, especially in our vain world where people have the inability to pass up looking at themselves in a mirror. To look at a broken one and see thier broken reflection and the effect that it creates.

Drawing as Memory- Creating a image out of salt, the effect the wind and weather creates on it. Very quickly it is gone. With todays technology without evidence of something, we are quick to question if it ever happened. Eventually the salt will dissappear. Was it ever really even there?

Drawing as Navigation- Walking through a puddle repeadedly the sound and motion created.

One Mark Against Many- Awkward and Rudely walking through a group on people on the sidewalk.
