interactive clay installation, Liminal Memory, Working Method Contemporary, First Friday June, Railroad Square, Tallahassee, FL.
This was a long overdue installation piece that helped me move on. Although I don’t and cant forget the things that I’ve seen and the people that I’ve met, this piece allowed me to let go and start afresh.
I hand built 30 domes, each consisting of three rings. The largest ring at the bottom had a diameter of about 9 inches with the opening at the top of about 5 inches. Hand rolled slabs with image transfers of familiar things, places, and people dominated the inside of each dome. The clay was fired to cone 018 (1319˚ F) which allowed it to be easily stepped on by the public.
I was left with dust and crumbled clay. A monument of scattered images piled up and ready for disposal.
I would like to thank everyone that came out to the show. It truly was something different for me.
