Collograph Samples

Just learned how to make a collograph this last week. I think this will open up a lot of possibilities for my crochet samples and larger scale blankets that are just not quite working yet. For instance I plan on making a collograph of Afghan #2 and the second blanket I made from the remnants in the next week.

100 Circle Project

A smaller installation work from 2011. I had concerns about the movement of viewer with my work, and decided to dissect how and why people move around a space the way they do. The heavily drawn circle in the middle is intended to invoke a “camp fire” effect while the hand drawn circle samples on the wall keep the viewers rotating around the central floor circle.

Rug Re-Presentation JMC Floor 2

Process: In this work I am dealing with the idea of representation vs. re-presentation. (See Artist Statement). This process involves me marking off a chosen venue, photographing the venue, creating a latch hook rug pattern based on the photograph, creating the rug then re-placing the rug back on the chosen venue.

Spatial Relationship against Room 218

Image 2

This installation consists of hundreds of white chalk circles hand painted on the floor at the Cleveland Institute of Art (Room 218). Here I am questioning the relationship of the human body, mine in particular, against the dimensions of this room. Each circle is drawn using my body’s dimensions as a tool for arranging the circles. I started at one corner of the room, drew a circle around me with my arm extended, the moved in a spiraling motion around the room until there was no space left in the center. The angle of the rooms’ walls and various pillars abstracted and skewed the arrangement.

It was interesting watching groups of viewers interact with the installation. While walking, they avoided the white lines as much as possible. While stationary, they each assigned themselves a personal circle.
