STUDIO

"Each piece is intended as an invitation to its audience, an invitation to explore. My installation pieces are, at a fundamental level, pranks. They are jokes in the form of sculpture. My intention is that they delight, surprise,and occasionally threaten. They challenge notions of place, and of safety."

L'AQUILA

2010

Monument for L'Aquila is a large scale art installation and memorial for the city. The installation's design is based on the seismic waveforms recorded during the major earthquake on April 6, 2009.  The timber strips are painted with a gray paint to build unity and symbolize the massive amounts of dust that coated the city  after the earthquake.

RESISTENZA

2010

In December 2010, Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi narrowly survived two confidence votes, avoiding the collapse of his government but prolonging Italy's political agony. As protests erupted on the streets,  the 'Resistenza' installation was designed as an act of civil disobedience. The temporary piece is easily constructable and grounded in the concept of 'you can fight a person, but you cannot fight an idea'.

CO-HABITATE

2011

The materiality of inhabitation usually remains ethereal, historic, or forgotten after a space is no longer inhabited. If recorded, the complex actions and interactions of habitation would weave a dense net through the spaces we live in. The collaborative project imagines a world in which our actions leave a physical yet ethereal presence behind them
