Tether

MAY 27 - JUNE 20, 2009
RECEPTION: MAY 30, 2 - 5pm

In this mixed media installation, the artist reflects on the process of grief through the lens of the science of nerves and electricity. A network of salt crystallized wire grids fill the gallery connecting photographs, sculpture, and sound. Juxtaposing the scientific with the personal, and the technological with the psychological and spiritual, Tether is a meditation on life and loss, presence and absence, tangible and ethereal…on the energy of connection.
