Transitional Artifacts (installation view)
site-specific installation, performance, and publication
diverse materials collected from the local area
Fresh Arts, Houston, TX
2014

Remarks:
Six-week performance and gallery installation. During the course of the exhibition, objects, materials, and motivations were gleaned from the surrounding area and brought into the performance space to be worked, re-worked, built-up, destroyed, removed, returned, and, ultimately, put up for sale. This image represents one state of a space that experienced constant reconsideration.
