Materials of our daily life are used to create this installation. More than 125 hand-painted bamboo sticks are inserted into each polystyrene ball. The installation process ends when the empty space is totally filled, based on a triangle grid, with the juxtaposition of 25 modules. At first glance, it looks like a field of dried tumbleweeds like the Hitchcock’s movies. Observing more closely, they become kind and all memories of past anxiety disappear. Over 3000 bamboo sticks and 25 polystyrene balls compose this work.
On view, at Artfields, Lake City, SC from April 25 through May 4, 2014. Venue: the R.O.B. [The Ragsdale Old Building] was once a tobacco warehouse and charcoal briquette factory.
