"Panspermia: Back Inside Me" installation and performance at SITE
Houston. Texas November-Feb. 2016
This installation and performance piece was on view at the SITE: Silos On Sawyer in Houston Texas. Twenty-seven artists were selected by Bill Arning, Director of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and by Jillian Conrad, professor of sculpture at the University of Houston to transform a space within a renovated industrial grain silo. Each artist was allotted a single grain silo and given a stipend to create a work. The architecture of the silos framed the creative process and forced each artist to think about their work in relation to a unique space. This installation included a twentyfive-foot tall organic pod –like structure filled with a messy accumulation of found objects suggesting ongoing experimentation involving reproduction and alien technologies. Sound elements tell the story of an ongoing scientific experiment gone array on unknowing subjects that spans both time and space. Live performance by the artist, furthered this story as she reconstituted her role as time/space traveller/mad scientist while eight months pregnant.
"We Are The Surface" an installation and performance piece, which offers the artist’s conceptualization of the surface of a distant planet. The impetus for this project began with a 1977 Carl Sagan televised lecture in which Sagan and children drink tea on the faux surface of Mars. This installation is a replica of that set and a metaphor for the alienation of grief. Viewers were encouraged to engage in tea with the artist and become the alien creature by "popping" their own head up through the surface.

"Platonia: The Chaotic Grandma Theory and Other Such Motivations" a multimedia installation centering on the building of an absurd time machine in an ever-changing “mess” of found objects, live butterflies, pee, silly putty, duct tape, sweet potatoes, homemade radio, hair, mosquito nets, video projection, and sound elements.
