  1. Meet Felipe

    I made a papier mache bird to watch over me while I sleep, and after I finished, I decided his name is Felipe. I finished him a few weeks ago and hung him from the ceiling. His wingspan is probably about four feet and his body is maybe 16″ long.  Here’s a progress shot: I started by forming a skeleton …

  2. The Garden for Wayward Girls

    The show went really well! Sorry it’s taken me so long to post. Micheline has uploaded a montage of clips from the approximately 25 minute piece onto her website, available here. I took close-up shots of all of the “Pandora’s boxes” I created (used as a metaphor for each dancer’s personal discovery and growth), and …

  3. The Garden for Wayward Girls

    Micheline Heal, my friend and fellow Oberlin alumna, is choreographing a beautiful modern dance piece called “The Garden for Wayward Girls”. I am flattered that she has asked me to help her with the “static” visual elements of the show- mainly some props (a Pandora’s box for each dancer) and set pieces/ installation. It has …

  4. Halloween

I have always thought old diving masks and diving presses (the hard-exterior type, which can go deeper underwater) are really cool-looking. There are many many different types of mask designs and breathing methods, all created …

  5. Perfection is a Trifle Dull

    The year of the senior studio program culminated in a thesis exhibition on April 9th, 2010. I showed work with Lucy Engleman, a sculptor and video artist. Above is our show poster, designed by Eliza Koch. Below is my artist statement for the works I’ve been creating this year. Note- if you came to the …

  6. Show photos

    Here is the completed Tags piece- with me standing in it for staffage. I wanted the tags, filled with faces, to come around the viewer and feel like a hug or at least give the impression of a densely populated space. Detail of some of the paintings. I started this project in January of this …

  7. Installation of tags piece

    These photos are what Fisher Gallery looked like at the start of the installation process for my senior studio exhibition. My show, titled “Perfection is a Trifle Dull” opened April 9th, 2010 (just getting up photos now though, heh) and stayed up until April 12th. This is my show partner, Lucy Engleman, and our professor …

  8. Nick van Woert

    Interesting sculpture by Nick van Woert, found on butdoesitfloat. His work could get gimmick-y real fast, but based on everything he has on his website, he isn’t just a one-trick pony. http://work.fourteensquarefeet.com/
