"Coo"
2006
Sound and video installation

The flapping and cooing of birds 
comes from various places inside 
a cavernous cement boiler building.  
The sounds are not entirely 
convincing, and upon closer 
listening are discovered to be 
human attempts at birdcalls.

"Untitled"
2004
Projected video, vents, carved 
foam, joint compound.

Video of smoke is projected so that it 
seems to come from vents inserted into 
the walls of the room.  In corners of 
the room where actual smoke might 
collect, the hard-edged corners have 
been rounded by filling them with carved 
foam.

Projected video (6' high), dollhouse 
window (5" tall), wire, vellum,
clip light, fan.

A small window appears to cast a moving 
light pattern onto the wall perpendicular 
to it.   A clip lamp shines through the 
small window, and paper and wire "leaves" 
are blown by an oscillating fan.

fiberglass insulation, wires, mirrors, 
wallpaper, and audio (2 speakers).

Daylight and sound filter through a 
ventilation grate, revealing a passage 
through the wall and a skewed view of 
the bus stop outside. The passage is 
the interior of a periscope built 
behind the gallery wall.
