Navigations in the Present Tense, 2013

Navigations in the Present Tense, installed at William Paterson University. The project is based on a poem, which accompanies the exhibition as a small book. This project revisits William Carlos Williams' poem Paterson, which I have loved for many years and used as reference before. For this project, I was interetsed in WCW's process in writing the poem. I read alot of what he wrote/said about his writing of the poem, and mimicked his actions - strolling, listening, observing, and conversing in this post-industrial city. I also quote his commentary about his process in my own poem, echoing the mosaic structure of Paterson, in which he uses letters, historical documents alongside his own prose.

Sculpture for Day Laborers, 2007

a site-specific work that refers to the reality of labor in a setting of idealized leisure. Long Branch, NJ is a beach town, in which there is a distinct dividing line between the beach front condos & retail development and what lies inland just a few blocks away. This lot is across the street from where local day laborers wait for work.

The text is based on interviews on the topic of leisure, with a group of men who wait for work in the lot across the street.

Blink If You Like Me, 2012

Site-specific installtion at Lehman College, part of Space Invaders curated by Karin Bravin

14 Flags, 8' tall each. The project references two specific aspects of the site: Lightning Bugs (the college mascot) and the use of the campus to train 95,000 women volunteers in the WAVES and SPARS programs during WWII. I was interested in the call and response both these things shared.

Conceptual Art Camp, 2009

day camp, art history and a vacant building in Asbury Park, NJ.

Conceptual Art Camp, 2009

Conceptual Art Camp was a performance and installation that took place in a vacant building on the Asbury Park boardwalk and offered all the experiences of normal camp – nature, campfires, singalongs, crafts – influenced by “famous” conceptual artists. For three days Conceptual Art Camp Counselors welcomed over 100 campers and led activities that included John Cage campfire songs, Yoko Ono inspired nature walks, On Kawara macaroni art, and Robert Smithson mirror displacement games, and a photobooth where participants selected their own natural background.
