Installations | Vessels The Falling Markings Reflections in Stone In Search of my Grandmother's Bread Bowl
The Falling explores the inherent relationship of an avalanche to a waterfall and the duality and dichotomy of destruction and regeneration in natural occurance. The project is composed of a multitude of elegant spare forms, appearing as giant, linear marks cascading down a huge expanse of wall. The forms, made from aspen that have been stripped of bark, split in half and shaped, are mounted flat against the wall in interlaced relationships much like ripples in running water. The aspens carry a history, evident in their coloration and beetle markings, and have primarily been harvested from trees downed in avalanche chutes near Aspen, Colorado.
The Falling was supported by a Visiting Artist Residency at Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
