Double Dutcher

This video documents an interactive kinetic wall installation I created for the Cranbrook Art Museum. In this work I created a cam shaft crank to engage the jump ropes in movement . Only through the participation of the viewer turning the handle allows the jump ropes to dance. Unlike a jump rope the sound created is more similar to that of a clydesdale horse or tap shoe.

Infinity Balloon

Infinity Balloon

latex balloon, helium, gold lurex, lawn ornament 

Infinity Balloon documents the life span of a helium balloon. When the balloon deflated I would replace it with a new one. During the duration of the exhibition I replaced the balloon four times.

Arms Identical to Mine

Arms Identical to Mine

live performance 4/20/13 6pm-8pm, graphite, wireless microphone, guitar amplifier

Arms Identical to Mine is a performance that happened at the Cranbrook Art Museum on April 20, 2013. I asked women of similar height as me to trace my arm span on the wall, and then I would trace their arm span in the same location. By using the childhood activity of drawing on the wall to record physical resemblance, my goal was to find someone who has the same arm span as mine. The sound of the drawing on the wall was amplified by using a wireless mic and guitar amplifier. The drawing offers a physical trace of human interaction.
