Winds of Change
The area of Angels Gate has high consistent winds at certain times of the day. Because of this I have created a piece that will work with the wind, creating sound all day then glow at night as it continues to create sound.
Most of my work is made of poured resin (see image1). When I decommission a piece of art, I do not throw it away. I take it apart and pack up by color into storage bins to be used at a later date. Well that time has come.
My proposed project will consist of stringing together these pieces of resin which are approximately the size of an 8″ plate and for most of them, they are somewhat flat. As the wind hits them, they will flap against each other like dominos in the wind and make sound above the participants. In the evening, they will glow in the dark because they have been covered with a glow in the dark resin that has spent the whole day absorbing the sun.


This piece is a series of 30 to 50 elongated plastic see-through tubes that are each approx 8 to 10 ft tall and hanging from the ceiling. The tubes are hung in such a way that they invite the viewer to walk through. As the viewer walks through, the tubes begin to shake making sound like the sound from a Nick Cave Soundsuit. The tubes begin to shake and the work begins to light up and change from one color to the next. Each tube will be outfitted with a sensor, vibrator and lighting system. 

The work is inspired by diversity and reflects on how light and dance can bring generations and cultures together. Throughout the world, each culture has its own form of dance and celebration and continues to use it to teach young generations about history and life.
