interactive mixed media installation
Tower is 90 feet tall. Observation deck 70 foot diameter.
Temporary installation transformed a historic water tower into a DIY Leviathan. The viewer enters into pinky light and reverberating soundtrack of digestive noises. Then, after a 97 stair climb, encounters a 50 foot wide eyeball-rolling device which can be operated via a central ship's wheel.
Magdalen in the Wilderness
mixed media incl: steel, resin, rhoplex, manila fiber, compost
18 x24 x40 feet (figures 8'6")
The room smells of moist compost. There is a fiberglass figure of Magdalen covered with human hair, seven floppy "skins" of the same figure, and seven hairy fiber trees. The skins rotate and swing as the viewer moves through the space.
