While at Anderson Ranch, I took a great class on Rhino/CNC routers led by Rich Tannen. I'm really interested in creating more dimensional forms. The next steps for this one are sanding and toning, either with ink or graphite.
Here's the router in action.
While at Anderson Ranch I was really focusing on exploring materials. Since I'd used human hair previously, I wanted to see what else I could do with it. I've begun creating hair "drawings" by adhering hair cuttings to paper to create these marks. The entire "drawings" are on the left and the detail of the top "drawing" is on the right. They are way more interesting to explore visually in person. These photos can't capture the detail.
I found a box of old ribbons from my youth as a competitive swimmer. Though they meant a lot to me at the time, they just don't elicit that same joy and pride that they did 30 years ago. I'm currently repurposing them in different formal ways because I love how they look and feel.
This was another series created at Anderson Ranch. The goal was to use previously generated text and recombine in new ways using powdered graphite, turmeric, and paprika. The scents of the spices really carried through each piece and I am thinking about larger scale installations that can use scent with text to engage the viewer.
