Picture of Schrodinger II

Schrödinger is an exercise in frustrated observation. The closer you inspect the piece, the lower the lights will fall and your reflection will obscure the contents. In sum, there is nothing to see here. Schrödinger speaks to expectations and observation. The common process of analyzing a piece is through closer inspection. And yet, with Schrödinger, […]

Schrodinger, the cat, modeling the Parabox

The Parabox Schrödinger is an exercise in frustration: the closer you approach the piece, the more difficult it is to see the subject. A box of one way mirrors encompasses a lit cat. Yet, as the observer approaches the cat, the lights lower. With lessening light, the material of the box becomes more mirrored and […]

Parabox - a rubber ducky is contained in a box of mirrored plexiglas and only visible when there is no one closely observing it.

Parabox Interactivity Interactivity is not reactivity. It is frequently confused as such, but distinct. Reactivity is a direct causal reaction to input. You flip a switch, the light turns on. Interactivity is flexible and acknowledges the intricacies of how we interface with other people and technology. To create an interactive art piece, then, the question […]

Paper Lanterns

Paper Lanterns is a simple exploration in creating “connections.” I find a primary challenge to be creating workable, meaningful pieces in that I overcomplicate them. I find there is always some glaring flaw that winds up being the “weak link” that ruins a piece. So, as an experiment, I tried to make something simple: a […]

Bringing Light To Dark Places - close up

Bringing Light To Dark Places This past week I have been participating the in 4-in-4 Project. The concept is for each participant to create and document 4 different, stand alone projects in four days. While my first three projects did not reach completion (and therefore, are only documented on the 4-in-4 website) the final piece […]
