Hey all, It's been a pretty long time since I've posted some new work. Here is an installation I did this week. I named the title "Meteor, Make Me Young." Lyrics to a Hop Along song that had really resonated with me upon hearing it. I usually use my own text/words in titles but this one fit too perfectly for the meaning behind the work. The materials consist of: Astro-turf, contact paper, spray paint, fabric, thread, fishing poles, glow sticks,bedsheets, light bulbs, and glow in the dark silkscreening ink. I am beginning to experiment with new materials in my work (but don't worry, fabric is still my one and only love). This installation was the first step into a new realm of working and I'm looking forward to the summer to experiment for next year's body of work. Happy summer everyone, I'm sweating my pits off already!
