Air into breath
black vinyl and aluminum - 15' x 25' x 20'  -  2009

Visual Arts Center, San Antonio College, San Antonio, Texas, 2009




Air into breath originated from my interest in how memories effect what we see. This distortion is not an optical aspect, but an aspect of comprehension based on our past experiences or simply, what we see is what we know.

The work was created from over 100 parallel thin strips of vinyl. Each strip was suspended end-to-end to an aluminum framework to form a series of inverted arches that vary in length to create a reverse topography of a preexisting form.
