In this site-specific installation the uniform works were floated between pine trees expanding approximately one acre in the Pike National Forest of Colorado.

 

I’m always struck by the empty nests within defoliated trees upon winter. It’s a lifted veil revealing a remarkable scale of “home” which in some cases expands to the opposite hemisphere of the planet to the exact tree, bridge, or cliff from which the home builders were born, not unlike the vast migrations of salmon and sea turtles. The illumination of the egg further emphasizes this mysterious life force growing outside its mother in suspended animation, soon to be making the same annual journey encoded in DNA. In context, at dusk or at dawn, the collection as a whole intends to penetrate the domain of the unconscious, the part of the mind that is inaccessible to the conscious mind but that affects behavior and emotions.

 

Installation made possible by a Grant from Apogaea of Colorado, matched by Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition.
