PARTICIPATION

On-site event June 1st

Installation:
Let Me Live where our meeting makes Music is a ceramic installation that incorporates a rotating horse-handled pot that interacts with a hanging ceramic and silverware mobile to create sound over a pile of discarded and intertwined objects. The work uses the metaphor of questioning the results and turmoil that comes from perceiving technical objects like kitchenware as both functional and creations of art to question the turmoil I experience in my multidimensional self. Is the horse an animal that is thought of as both technical and emotional itself? Viewers are asked to interrogate which objects are meeting together to create music, an emotional response that results from the meeting of the horse and the silverware and “silverware.”
