Slip, Shift, or Spill , 2017, Tyvek  This installation developed out of a residency at Shelburne Farms, Vermont. For Burlington City Art's exhibition on the theme of water and the land, I played with ideas of material displacement - a major consequence of watershed. From sheets of Tyvek hanging down in the center of the space, cut out forms of trees spilled onto the ground now appearing like liquid. Drawn from the over 100 year old trees placed like markers around Shelburne Farms, the cut out forms left different empty spaces that appeared like unreal portals and burst-through holes.

  Field Notes , 2015, Tyvek, Installation views in Groton State Forest  A series of idioms cut out of banners wrap around trees throughout the woods of Groton State Forest as part of Burlington City Art's program, Of Land and Local.  In this work, language is juxtaposed with the natural world. The phrases themselves, disengaged from the words' roots, bring to mind everything except nature.  Each word –  mountains, stick, water, mud  – instead refers to impalpable elements of the human condition – joys, achievements or conflicts.
