Umbrellas was designed for a project on emotional intelligence. The goal of the experience is for the viewer to feel surprise and delight. Five closed umbrellas are suspended by fishing wire from the ceiling. The viewer is invited to open the umbrellas, which each have a unique reveal (such as lighting up, play a song or dropping confetti.)
Designed for the 2007 RISD Painting Department Senior Show. 64 Styrofoam globes, covered in fabric collage, were suspended from a 15 foot dome in the Woods Gerry Gallery. The goal for the installation was to create a mini universe of planets and to evoke an expansive sense of scale in a confined space.
An installation designed for my studio space. It is made entirely of fabric. The viewer lies down on the blue pillow on the floor and looks up and experiences a feeling of flying, seeing clouds and the green grass with flowers below.
