Sculpture and Installation Work
Aspiration: an assignment from Johnny Coleman's class, "Something From Something."
For this project, I created a space in the nook below the stairwell in the art building enclosed with muslin curtains and sheets.
Materials: cloth, yarn, mod podge, latex, chicken wire for shoe shape
Gift: final project from "Something From Something"
For this project, I made three wood frame and paper lamps, one of which went to a friend, the other two of which went to my supervisors at the Lorain County Rape Crisis Center (LCRCC), where I've been volunteering for a few months. The sound element of the video/installation is an interview I conducted with my supervisors about the work they do at LCRCC. The intention behind this gift was to express my gratitude for the work my supervisors have done for survivors of sexual assault.
These objects can be viewed in darkness or lightness, but I prefer to present the installation in the dark with the flickering light inside the lamp as the only visual element the viewers can focus their attention on as they listen to the voices of the interview.
I'm having technical difficulties getting the video uploaded, but here are some images of the piece in the light in the meantime.
